Historic New Bern is a town of around 30,000 folk, where tradition dances with progress and Southern charm mingles with diversity. Set along the Trent and Neuse Rivers, and centrally located on the North Carolina coast, New Bern has a whole world of goodness to offer both a resident and a visitor.
As the second-oldest colonial town in North Carolina and the previous capital of the North Carolina colonial government, New Bern is rich in history, with buildings dating as far back as the 1700s. In 1710, the Swiss and Palatine immigrants led by Christoph von Graffenried, settled in the town and named it after Bern, the capital of Switzerland.
With an attractive low cost of living, affordable housing, a moderate climate, and access to quality health care, New Bern is an ideal destination for those looking to relocate for their senior years.
A short drive east on Hwy 70 and you will find yourself on the “Inner Banks” and in the historic town of Beaufort (that’s “BOH-fert”). The third oldest city in North Carolina, Beaufort is known for its southern charm and boating mecca.
