About New Bern


New Bern is a diverse community situated on the Neuse and Trent rivers.   Founded in 1710, our rich history and waterfront location provide a unique setting to live, work and play in one of the most desirable locations along the eastern seaboard. Here, three centuries of Swiss influences are abundant all over town, while the rhythm of the rivers keeps everything moving forward.

Live music, local theatre, street festivals and special events dot the calendar year-round and draw artists and audiences from around the globe.  New Bern's namesake, the bear, has taken on an art form of its own with colorful, life size bears all over town.  Our culinary scene has become a hub for foodies, offering traditional cuisine and the untraditional culinary innovation...all served with a gracious side of southern hospitality.

New Bern is a laid back city full of progressive thinkers and professional opportunities. A unique blend of businesses - from internet coffee houses and yoga studios to manufacturing and pleasure boatbuilding - provide a cosmopolitan spark to daily life, with the relaxed flow of the rivers as a gorgous backdrop.  Our rich history of international commerce has given way to a modern business environment, bringing together fresh energy and new ideas for startups and established companies alike.
