We had fun stopping and taking a family picture here! It was fun to run around and let us stretch for a little while. It’s right off the highway so it was an easy stop. Very cool!

This sits right beside FATZ restaurant. Easy to park and photograph. You need about ten minutes. It is creatively painted. The frontage road it sits beside is an easy road to navigate.

OK, I live in Alabama, so we have our own version in Clanton. Still, it's pretty cool to be driving down the interstate and see this giant peach. Brings back memories of James and the Giant Peach.

It's a must see if come to Gaffney. You can see it from the freeway. If you like the TV show House of Cards, then you will want to see this in person.

Driving on Interstate 85, you will drive by a water tower that looks like a peach. That's it, folks! There is really nothing more to see.

At 135 feet tall, the Peachoid can be seen from a long distance. It is a really cute way to decorate a water tower and also highlight the local peach industry. If you are close, drive up to it and take some kool photos.

It’s a giant peach! It is worth a quick stop if you are in the area. Seeing this brightened my day and had a little bit of fun taking a few pictures! :)

My daughter and I drove past this completely unexpectedly on a road trip up I-85. I'd seen it on TV (House of Cards) and immediately knew what it was. "Oh! There's the Gaffney Peachoid!". We didn't get off the highway, but it brightened up our...More

This isn’t something to go out of your way to see but if you are driving from Atlanta to Charlotte you can’t miss it. The debate about if it’s obscene made for interesting comments on Facebook.

You can't miss this giant peach as you travel on 85 (north or southbound). You know you're in Gaffney when you pass it. It has gone thru some changes. Since it fades from the sun, it has been repainted. It's not everyday you see a...More
