About Our Area

There’s a saying in New Bern: “everything you need is just five minutes away.” It’s true. From retail and dining, to movies and healthcare, it’s easy to get around here. And that goes for attractions and travel opportunities as well. You can take easy day trips to historic fishing villages, Atlantic beaches, the Croatan National Forest, and more, as well as visit major metropolitan areas such as Wilmington and Raleigh. There are golf courses galore in and around New Bern, as well as museums, galleries, theaters, specialty shops, music events, fine dining – you name it! You can even plan a weekend trip to the Smokey Mountains, just four hours away. So by land, air or sea, you can easily travel far and wide from New Bern, North Carolina. This, along with many other traits, makes New Bern and Craven County an exceptional place to own a home and raise a family.
