The Gold Standard For An Active Lifestyle.

New Bern isn’t just a great place to visit. It’s a great place to call home, too. This beautiful riverfront community has been named one of the “Top 10 Coastal Towns Where You Can Afford to Retire”—and for good reason.

In its 300-year history, everything from historic neighborhoods with Georgian and Federal architecture, to peaceful streets lined with cozy bungalows, to downtown condos, to master planned golf communities have been a distinct part of its character. Whether you’re looking for a historic turn-of-the-century home to make your own, something maintenance-free or the benefits of a gated community, there are options for any budget and lifestyle. Just a short drive to the coast, New Bern offers direct access to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean—all without the high costs associated with beachfront living. And without question, you’ll quickly get to know your neighbors here. New Bern blends old-fashioned Southern charm with the friendly warmth of a small town.

» Avid golfer? New Bern has a number of courses — private and public — that will challenge you at any skill level.

» Cultural opportunities abound in New Bern, whether it’s enjoying the North Carolina Symphony, the theater, a lecture at the NC History Center or a trip to a downtown art gallery.

» Explore the outdoors, where riverfronts provide the perfect setting for boating, fishing and kayaking, and where biking and hiking are part of everyday adventures.

» New Bern has unique shopping and dining you’re sure to enjoy, with historic downtown offering boutiques and gourmet restaurants.
