Forget the Car – This is Golf Cart Country

Peachtree City, Georgia is the Leave It To Beaver town complete with manicured lawns, friendly neighbors, and tree-lined sidewalks, but what sets this charming community apart is its reputation as the “golf cart city.” With over 90 miles of the paved pathway linking residents to shops, restaurants, and green-spaces, it’s not unusual to see people pulling into their driveways in golf carts filled with groceries instead of clubs, or taking open-air joy-rides through nature. Named one of the best places to retire by U.S News & Money Magazine, Peachtree City has the kind of sweet tea on the porch Southern lifestyle that active adults can sink their roots into.

Peachtree is an age-friendly master-planned community located less than 30 minutes south of Atlanta, and just 18 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. While a trip to the big city promises a high energy metropolitan fix, retirees agree there’s nothing like returning to their resort town where the grass is always greener, and recreation is right outside their door. This all-inclusive town is a throwback to the days where neighbors were like family, and with all, there is to do in Peachtree City, this kind of nostalgia is part of modern-day life. From live events including concerts held at the Frederick Brown Amphitheater, outdoor movies, and sports tournaments, 55+ residents have plenty of opportunities to fill their social calendar.

Home to rambling championship golf courses, immaculately landscaped parks equipped with basketball courts, and disc golf areas, two lakes, and shaded nature trails, Peachtree City is an outdoor enthusiast’s playground. Affluent, yet approachable, the city’s limited expansion is an integral part of maintaining its small-town integrity. Fewer vehicles on the road have also contributed to cleaner air and a smaller carbon footprint. As a self-contained resort town, an active adult has access to everything from their own city hall, and library, to myriad retailers including big name stores, and privately owned boutiques. From date nights to lunch meet-ups, there’s no need to travel for great food. From Southern staples like shrimp and grits to authentic Italian, and burger joints, residents will find a smorgasbord of impressive dining options. Beneath Peachtree City’s sophisticated, the well-groomed aesthetic is a gracious, and inviting town where active adults are living the good life one golf cart ride at a time.
