Overlooking the Trent and Neuse rivers, and little more than an hour’s drive from North Carolina’s stunning coastline, the city of New Bern has a lot to offer lovers of sun and sand. Guests of our New Bern hotels can explore the riverside grounds of Union Point and Lawson Creek parks, or head inland for an afternoon picnic at lovely Fort Totten Park.
One of the city’s most renowned attractions is Tryon Palace, the historic one-time home of North Carolina's royal colonial governors. There, visitors staying at our hotels in New Bern can learn more about the state’s second-oldest city, with stops at the Maude Moore Latham Memorial Garden and the North Carolina History Center.
After working up an appetite, travelers visiting our accommodations in New Bern can grab Sunday brunch at The Flame, pick up picnic staples at the Pollock Street Deli, or savor the fantastic fare at The Chelsea. Feeling parched? Fear not––beloved beverage maker Pepsi-Cola was founded in New Bern, so an ice-cold can is never out of reach.
Guests visiting New Bern in mid-May will no doubt enjoy the Neuse River Days, a water-side festival that focuses on conservation and environmental responsibility.
