Tyrone is a cute town that houses a variety of many local businesses to occupy your time in. The quaint town also has a lot of greenery and open land which is great for people that love the outdoors or just want to take an afternoon stroll. Downtown Tyrone also has golf cart paths that connect to a larger town called Peachtree City. These paths provide an easy access to many other restaurants, stores, and amazing golf courses, all without needing a car! The only thing I would change about Tyrone is it houses many conservatives that voice their white supremacist ideals with large confederate flags and signs that read "All Lives Matter." I understand we all have a right to voice our opinion, but sometimes in this small town citizens let their opinions get in the way of being a respectful person.

I've lived in Tyrone for over 12 years now, and it's the most peaceful town you'll ever visit! It is safe to say that not much happens, but that doesn't take away from all fun attractions you can enjoy with friends and family like the Tyrone park or visiting its neighboring city, Peachtree city. This city is truly one of its kind and is a great place to get away from the stress of a fast paced life.
Tyrone is overall pretty boring, not many big things to do unless you live in certain neighborhoods or are in a public school or around certain holidays. However, when there are event, they’re very inclusive and extremely fun. It’s also very quiet and nice if you need fresh air and want to get away from the city.
