Everything is bigger and better in the USA!

Further proof that size is everything here! The giant peach is a blend of comical and rude - another fun stop when road tripping on the I85

A standing SC joke for its humanoid shape. It does draw attention to the importance of fresh peaches to the local economy.

Who wants to be known for having the huge butt in the sky with a hemorrhoid? However it's a great sight to see...and I always take visitor to snap a few pictures for their Facebook, Instagram etc. Everyone gets a laugh.

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.

...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.

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.

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!
