Milling About visits Peachtree City, Georgia where ironically there is not a peachtree in sight. Hop on one of their 10,000 golf carts and drive around 90 miles of designated golf cart paths and you'll soon discover the charm of this southern city affectionately known as 'The Bubble.' Turn 15 and you are gifted a golf cart which Executive Director of the CVB, Nancy Price says, 'can be tricked out!' Celebrities who frequent Peachtree City can be seen cruising around like Bret Michaels; a regular performer at The Fred Ampitheater, a quaint venue celebrating it's 20th anniversary, which Price also manages.
Life is good at 15 mph where golf carts are the preferred mode of transportation. If you stay at The Wyndham Hotel don't miss their photo safari with Frank Murphy where you are given a map, a list of clues and a camera to photograph the answers. Friendly shopkeepers and locals don't even seem surprised when you ask if they have a red Solo cup or if they can model a throw of frisbee golf.
Dolce Hotels and Resorts General Manager Wende Blumberg along with Chef Len Elias and Georgia Shrimp Company restaurant owner Ant Murphy join host Robin Milling to talk about what makes Peachtree City so special. Wende tells Robin how the laidback lifestyle attracts guests. Some are high profile preferring the woodsy privacy of the property. Mums the word but she did fess up to neighboring Pinewood Studios gearing up for Ant Man starring Michael Douglas. Long Island native Dolce Chef Len Elias brings farm to table goodness with a southern flair featuring chocolate espresso shrimp atop grits sprinkled with local goat cheese, and oysters topped with University of Georgia caviar! South African born Ant Murphy puts a peri peri sauce spin on Georgia shrimp like you've never tasted before. And when he's not greeting diners, he's crooning Frank Sinatra standards with the house jazz trio fronted by songstress Toni Byrd.
