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

We travel in Motorhome, and take lots of pictures. This SC peach will be added to our collection of interesting water towers...

Interesting architectural design. Great picture as it does actually look like a large peach. Tremendous idea to disguise a water tower as peach; very clever. It was nice to see.

This water tank is worth the drive by, it's visible from I-85 north or southbound or you get on the frontage road and walk right up to it thru Millwood Park. Great photo op !!!

We thought this was the gateway to the peach farm-it is not. Just a unique water tower that’s kind of cool, and peachy!
