New Bern

New Bern has a lifestyle that is second to none in enjoyment, services, and recreational waterfront.

Welcome to New Bern

New Bern, NC is the gateway to the Inner Banks of NC, and has many similarities to Annapolis, MD.  It was the British colonial capitol of NC, and offers much history and culture.  It has a large bridge conecting it to Oriental, NC and the waters of Pamlico Sound, much like the Bay Bridge on the Chesapeake.  And it has a lifestyle that is second to none in enjoyment, services and recreational waterfront.  It has made many Top 10 Lists for best small cities in which to retire.

The waters of Trent River and the Neuse River join and widen to several miles wide at New Bern to form the beginning of the Pamlico Sound.  New Bern offers excellent boating, a wide variety of golf courses, and quality restaurants, amenities and outdoor activities, which combine to make it a jewel in coastal Carolina.

Landmark Sotheby's International Realty can help you find the perfect home in this wonderul waterfront community.
