Peachtree City, Georgia has a fabulous location and is quickly becoming the 'Hollywood of the South'. Nestled just 25 minutes south of Atlanta's Harts- field Jackson International airport, you'll find one of the most unique meeting destinations in the country. With over 90 miles of paved cart paths, visitors enjoy a host of activities that are easily accessible by one of Peachtree City's signature vehicle's—A Golf Cart! Your group can experience a little bit of Holly- wood in Peachtree City while aboard The South- ern Hollywood Film Tour. The picturesque city proudly shares in the claim to fame of the hit tel- evision series The Walking Dead. Peachtree City can also be spotted in high-budget films such as "Sweet Home Alabama," starring Reese Wither- spoon, and "Joyful Noise," starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. On The Southern Hollywood Film Tour, groups will visit famous film and television sites. From young children to senior citizens, The Southern Hollywood Film Tour will entertain everyone! Recent star sight- ings in Peachtree City include Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, and Norman Reedus. While Peachtree City has continually won awards for being a great place to raise children and to retire—it is also a fun place to visit as a vacation or meeting destination. The Peachtree City Convention and Visitors Bureau is fortunate to partner with two full service hotel/conference centers, plus 5 additional premier properties. From moderately priced rooms to elegant suites, we have the perfect choice to fit your budget. During your visit, let the Peachtree City CVB help you arrange unique experiences for your attendees. Wherever you stay in Peachtree City, you are sure to find the comforts of home. Addi- tionally, Peachtree City's easy access to nearby Atlanta attractions such as the CNN Center, High Museum of Art, Georgia Aquarium and the Atlanta Motor Speedway make it the perfect choice for a meeting destination with something for everyone. With five distinct villages located throughout the city, each supported by a retail center, Peachtree City is a shopper's dream! From locally owned boutiques to national chains, you are sure to find something to love. There is also a diverse selection of locally owned restaurants. From Asian to Southern, the owners and chefs put their heart and soul into providing a delicious menu of food and drinks. Along with great food, you also get the spirit of the neighborhood, staff and owners. Recreational activities are in abundance in Peachtree City. Within a 5-minute golf cart ride from your hotel, play golf at one of three private courses, or tennis at Peachtree City's USTA Tennis Center. Next, imagine the excitement of a Golf Cart Scavenger Hunt. Dividing your group into teams for a fun outing makes for an excel- lent team building experience. Customizing this event is easy! Teams are given a list of items to either collect or photograph, like a grocery bag from the Fresh Market or a team picture in front of the fountain at City Hall plaza. Once teams return to the start line, points are given for items collected, time of completion, and creativity. This out of the box activity has always been a huge success among every participant. A concert under the stars is another favorite thing to do in Peachtree City! Nestled in the pines and located in the heart of the city, the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater is a summer hot spot among locals and visitors. 'The Fred,' a 2500 seat outdoor amphitheater, is home to inter- national touring acts like Huey Lewis, Foreigner, and Gladys Knight.
