So I am wondering about the vibe of peachtree city. I see that the income per family is great, however, I wonder where it comes from. Is it all "old money"? "new millionaires"? retired folk? or is the pay for working there just that good?

Peachtree City is full of working people. Old Money?! That is more like the Buckhead mansion district uptown west of Peachtree Street or Druid Hills maybe, not Peachtree City. Peachtree City is more upper middle class, not millionaires. A whole bunch of airline (Delta) people: Pillots, middle managers, etc. There are many transplants there, too thanks to the schools, sylvan surrounds, and winding golf cart paths. Really Peachtree City has the upper middle-class "vibe" of East Cobb, Johns Creek, or Milton in my opinion, only better since it has less traffic. Definitely suburban,but nice.

It's basically the official unofficial city of Delta employees.

Very good description. PTC is one of the farthest from old money types.

I grew up there. Definitely not old money. Lots of Delta pilots. Conservative, but not in an aggressive, churchy way. And with the rapidly-expanding film industry, you can expect a few more liberals as well as the occasional actor/actress sighting. The famous golf cart paths are great places to meet people. Also, the 4th of July parade and fireworks show are awesome.

Peachtree City is more diverse than you might think. Growing up, I had white neighbors, black neighbors, Asian neighbors and Indian neighbors.

Also, traffic is something you have to prepare for, but it's definitely not as bad as it is in Cobb and Gwinnett.

Thanks guys! Love the info here! So younger families with mom/dad as Delta employees, not a bunch of retired folks running around on golf carts then?

Peachtree City is diverse age wise. Many younger families prefer it for the schools. Granny on a golfcart? That sounds more like Sun City Peachtree in the Hampton/ Griffin area.
