You can see the Peachoid fairly well if driving on I-85. It's a landmark that has been in Gaffney for a very long time and it's a great place to snap a quick picture. Kids usually love seeing it!

You can't miss this giant peach as you pass by on I-85 or while in Gaffney. It is best viewed from the side with the leaf- otherwise it resembles a butt. But- it is very neat close up, especially at night.

Saw this a few times during our stay in the area. Have to admit it was pretty odd to see it the first time!

Be a tourist and take the exit to get close to the tower for a family picture. It is a little out of the way to find

The first time that I passed this, I knew that I had to get a photo. You can see it from a long way off. Unique!

This water tower is amazing. Peach orchards are a BIG deal in the Gaffney, SC area - and this water tower pays tribute to that --- and is quite a sight to see! Very colorful, very impressive.

If you travel on I-85 going toward Cherokee County, SC, you can't miss the "big peach" water tower. You can get off the interstate and take the frontage road to view it closer-up.
