Homes here date to the early 1700s and represent a variety of architectural styles. Residents enjoy the convenience of downtown shopping, dining, coffee shops, art galleries and churches. Strolling along the tree-lined streets for events such as ArtWalk and MumFest or taking advantage of free symphony concerts on the lawn of Tryon Palace are just a few of the happenings downtown. . . .not to mention New Bern’s Farmers Market, or simply quenching your thirst at the Pepsi Store (New Bern is the birthplace of Pepsi).

Our waterways are as much a part of New Bern’s identity as its long and rich heritage, from its past as a bustling port city to its present with marinas and waterfront dining. In 2013, BoatU.S. Magazine named New Bern among their "Top Great Boating Towns to Retire, Play and Thrive".
