New Bern Area Attractions

We hope you are enjoying your stay in beautiful, historic Eastern North Carolina. The area is rich in history, folklore and fun in the sun. Tryon Palace, the colonial capital of North Carolina, is located in nearby downtown New Bern's Historic District. While you are downtown be sure to visit all the local restaurants and shops, and stop by the Pepsi Store - New Bern is the birthplace of Pepsi. Mitchell's Hardware is a real General Store dating back to 1898, and another 'must see.'

On the Crystal Coast are some of the east coast's best beaches, including Atlantic Beach and Fort Macon State Park. Visit the North Carolina Maritime Museum to see artifacts from Black Beard's Queen Anne's Revenge, and maybe even discover his treasure buried somewhere in Beaufort.

Being located on the water, Fairfield Harbour offers a variety of water sports and activities - boating, sailing, kayaking, jet skiing, fishing and more. There are so many things to see and do, you'll want to come back again to try them all.
