New Bern is a city in Craven County, North Carolina, United States. You've now added Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola to your itinerary. Visiting Fort Macon State Park and Hammocks Beach State Park will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate North Carolina History Center - Tryon Palace and New Bern Fireman's Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Topsail Island (in Surf City), North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores (in Pine Knoll Shores) and Beaufort (Island Express Ferry Service & North Carolina Maritime Museum). There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Carolina Creations Fine Art & Contemporary Gallery, get engrossed in the history at New Bern Academy Museum, and view the masterpieces at Fine Art at Baxters.
