New Bern

New Bern is a city in Craven County, North Carolina, United States. Get some historical perspective at Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site and Historic Hope Plantation. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Historic Edenton State Historic Site and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll find plenty of places to visit near New Bern: Edenton (St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Barker House, & more), Onslow Vietnam Veterans Memorial (in Jacksonville) and Swansboro (Hammocks Beach State Park & Stand-Up Paddleboarding). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Somerset Place State Historic Site, admire the natural beauty at Isaac Taylor Garden, stroll around New Bern Historical Society Civil War Battlefield Park, and mingle with the ghosts of the past at Portsmouth Village.
