This is what we know Gaffney for. Our great peach. It's what everyone talks about and once seen you will know where you've been.

The peachoid is what Gaffney is most known for! Very popular in the area and many celebrities have taken pictures with it!

...PEACH! Unique roadside attraction in South Carolina. Unless you're a big fan of peaches, water towers, or weird landmarks, there is no reason to go out of your way to see it. But if you are driving on 85 in the Gaffney area, it's an easy stop right off the highway with parking so you can walk right up underneath... More

Huge. Nice place to get a close up view of it instead of from the interstate. Can't do much but look at it or sit under it. Again, the size, shape and colors are interesting. Sit a while and then go to Fatz next door.

Great to see nothing like it. Great pic moments to have. Its right next to Fatz restaurant as well so can get some good food in the process of viewing.

We were by The Peachoid this morning and it was round, orange and had a nice green leaf on top. But as an attraction, it's not such-a-much. Plus how much time can I you speed looking at it? Too long and your neck would likely hurt. If this was a popularity among water towers it would be up there among... More

I love the peach! This is the best water tower I've seen. The renovations are great and this is a great representation of this area. Gotta love the peach!

It looks so real, and every time I pass it I get a craving for peach cobbler or peach ice cream, depending on the season.

We just drove by the peachoid but as big House of Cards fans we thought it was awesome! Liked the red roof Inn and the Bojangles. Underwood underwood 2016!

This is a unique water tower shaped like a peach. You can drive up to it by getting off the interstate at the next exit going south and go up the side road that runs along the interstate. There is a FATZ restraint that is practically under the peachoid. Nothing else to do buy get a couple camera shots of... More
