New Bern North Carolina Relocation Information

New Bern NC Relocation Information

New Bern is where American history meets modern day Americana. Dating back almost 300 years, New Bern is famous for the eminent Tryon Palace, and its newly added History Center. With 17th century architecture and beautifully restored Victorian mansions, it is easy to get lost in the rich culture of North Carolina’s second oldest town.

The Birthplace of Pepsi and home to a variety of shops and restaurants, New Bern embraces modern style with the annual MumFest Festival and bimonthly Art Walk. Participate in the ‘Bear Tracks Hunt’ and search for the colorful bear statues of downtown, or fall in love with the delicious homemade ice cream at Cow Café. 

Union Point Park, one of the most stunning scenic views of New Bern is located where the Neuse and Trent Rivers meet. The park has two boat launches where you can sail down the Neuse River towards Pamlico Sound, the largest lagoon in the Eastern United States. Not far from the river is the 160,000 acre Croatan National Forest, a playground for the outdoor sports enthusiast who enjoy a lifestyle surrounded by North Carolina coastal real estate.

New Bern has a highly acclaimed public school system, and its medical center has been named by Business North Carolina as one of the top hospitals in the State for cardiac care. Affordable housing prices also make New Bern an attractive place for retirement. The culturally and historically rich town of New Bern is the perfect blend of old meets new, and it awaits your arrival!

Although the fees are high, the value we receive by staying 'above the crowd' with quality amenities is well worth it.

We've lived here now for 7 years and wouldn't trade it for anywhere else.
Coastal North Carolina
Wish we had been told about the rail cars dumping gravel every Tuesday night. This should be part of a noise ordinance. Please help us.
