I absolutely adore New Bern! The family-owned shops downtown are adorable, inexpensive, and beautiful! The buildings are very old with big pillars, winding staircases, and grand windows. New Bern also has these cute bear decorations everywhere you go. Two rivers flow into each other here. It’s not the stinky type of river water either.

When moving to the city of New Bern, North Carolina, someone should consider the small-town feel and charm. If they are moving from a much larger city, they will not be used to the slow pace of New Bern. But, if they are looking for a friendly environment, with a lot of water sports, boating, and fishing, New Bern is the place for them.
