LOCAL PROFILE: Peachtrees of Atlanta, debunked

LOCAL PROFILE: Peachtrees of Atlanta, debunked

ATLANTA – In Georgia, the name Peachtree is pretty common, considering the state’s nickname, “The Peach State”. And, perhaps the most confusing thing, for out-of-towners, to learn is how to distinguish between the different ones.

Seemingly, everywhere one looks there is a Peachtree something. From schools, to streets, to stores the Peachtree is one of the most visible hallmarks in the metro area.

Even Native Atlantans get lost or confused about which Peachtree is which because a new Peachtree pops up every couple of years. So to help debunk their differences the “Where U Live” team has compiled a list of a couple.

Perhaps the most popular Peachtree of them all, Peachtree Street, is one of the most notable street names in the southern portion of the United States.  The street runs the entire span of Downtown Atlanta into the Buckhead neighborhood, where it turns into Peachtree Road.
