The city

The geographic center of Peachtree City is [Georgia State Route 54] and [Peachtree Parkway].

Peachtree City has a system of golf cart paths which spider across the town and provide a secondary means of access to almost any destination within city limits. These multi-use paths stretch for more than ninety miles throughout the city. Many places of business have specially designated golf cart parking spaces and the Peachtree City Police Department has several golf carts that patrol[4] along the paths. Over 9,000 households own a golf cart, more than any other city in the world, and use them as an extra vehicle for local transportation. Children aged twelve or over may operate a cart on Peachtree City cart paths with a parent, grandparent or guardian in the front seat. Unaccompanied fifteen-year-olds with valid Georgia Learner's Permits are allowed to operate golf carts alone. Students at McIntosh High School are even encouraged to drive their golf carts to school because of limited car parking. The golf cart paths are also used by bikers, joggers, and pedestrians as a safer alternative to the side of the road.

Peachtree City has a regional airport, Falcon Field, which hosts an airshow every year. The airport is also the location of a National Weather Service radar station and Weather Forecast Office, which serves 96 counties in northern and central Georgia. Peachtree City is also the city of license for WWLG (96.7 FM), a Classic Country radio station that covers the south Atlanta metropolitan area.
