New Bern, North Carolina sits cozied against the juncture of the Neuse and Trent rivers, perfectly positioned to create a unique blend of historic buildings, natural grandeur, and big-city gentility. While you could easily find yourself booking flights to New Bern for business travel, a vacation to New Bern also gives you a chance to play on both land and water, then explore a 300-year-old town before heading to bed in one of the best hotels in New Bern.
New Bern may be best known for its museums, history centers, and walking tours, but you'll also find plenty of notable gardens, art galleries, and venues for live music and theater. Make time to explore the nearby 157,000-acre Croatan National Forest, go sailing or kayaking on the Trent and Neuse rivers, take a narrated boat tour, or rent a bicycle and tour along the waterfront. With just two main highways threading through town, most New Bern hotels are just a stone's throw from some of the best art and culture attractions, although having a car is the easiest way to get around.
You'll find the best restaurants in New Bern clustered along highways 17 and 55, and tucked along Broad Street near the Neuse River. Seafood is one of the biggest offerings here, interspersed with American fine dining and the occasional Chinese restaurant; as a bonus, a healthy number of restaurants offer live music with your meal.
