We’ve recently found the prettiest little town called New Bern in North Carolina where everyone knows our name (well, not quite but getting there). It’s that town that you mention and folks usually say “yep, it’s that place with all the bridges and lots of sailboats” but we’ve never stopped.
New Bern is approximately 35 miles from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is located where the Neuse and Trent rivers meet on the east coast of North Carolina. This area is referred to as The Crystal Coast – aptly named.
Restaurants & Cultural Scene
There are frequent festivals that bring many people the charming downtown area that has several interesting restaurants. Hope you have a car.
- The Aquarium at pine-Knoll: http://www.ncaquariums.com/pine-knoll-shores (it’s small but lots of cool animals)
- Fort Macon http://www.ncparks.gov/fort-macon-state-park. Also if you want to take a drive – Atlantic Beach is approximately 40 minutes away. https://www.crystalcoastnc.org/region/atlantic-beach.
