The Magic of New Bern

There’s no denying that New Bern has magic all on its own. From the rich history to the lush beauty of its local, there’s just something in the air that holds us all entranced. What makes New Bern so special? That’s a story three centuries in the making.

New Bern is found in one of the most beautiful places in the United States: the low-lying Tidewater region of eastern North Carolina. This particular corner of the world is home to verdant coastal forests, vibrant salt marshes, and beautiful inland waterways. Wildlife abounds, including a yearly passage by millions of migratory birds. The city of New Bern itself sits at the confluence of the Trent and Neuse rivers, surrounding the city with peaceful waters, stunning views, and a host of recreational activities.

The city matches its landscape in beauty and charm. New Bern makes the best use of its setting with an extensive and beautiful waterfront, much of which is open to the public so that everyone can enjoy the view. The city is filled with trees and green spaces, further embracing the lovely natural setting and allowing wildlife to thrive in the heart of the city. Their foliage stands in counterpoint to the charming cobblestones streets of New Bern’s world-renown history district, which showcases the city’s history via well preserved historic architecture. Homes and shops occupy historic buildings built over the last three centuries, showing how the city has grown and changed in a tangible way. The highlight of the city’s historic district is the colonial capital of North Carolina, Tryon Palace. This beautifully maintained colonial home is now a museum and living history site, open to the public most of the year. There you can see what New Bern used to be, and gain some insight into what it’s become.

The lifestyle New Bern offers its residents borders on the ideal. The city is home to a wide variety of entertainment and cultural options, with fine dining, Southern cuisine, and nightlife available in equal measure. You’ll never want for things to do, whether you’re looking for a cup of coffee in a peaceful cafe, cocktails before dinner, or live entertainment.
