The developers planned on creating villages in Peachtree City, with each area having its own schools, parks, shopping centers, and more. The current villages in Peachtree City are Aberdeen, Braelinn, Glenloch, Kedron, and Wilksmoor. The city is most well-konwn for its 90 miles of multi-use paths for golf carts, cyclists, and pedestrians.

The town of Tyrone originally belonged to the Creek Indians before being settled by Irish farmers in the late 1800s. Some homes built by those first Irish settlers are still occupied by their descendants. The name comes from County Tyrone in Ireland. With only about 7,000 residents, Tyrone is a small residential community located only 25 miles from Atlanta. The proximity to Atlanta makes it convenient for residents to access the many amenities that the large city has to offer.
