New Bern Stories and Tips


THE NEW BERN TROLLEY TOUR Photo, New Bern, North Carolina

We took the New Bern Trolley Tour, which left from the front of the Tryon Palace Ticket Office & Visitor Center. Our tour guide told us about many of New Bern's historic old houses. During the tour, we made a stop at the New Bern Cemetery where we took a walk and viewed many of the old headstones. The tour lasted about an hour and a half and was well worth the admission price. We learned a lot about the history of New Bern and many of its homes. The streets of New Bern are lined with historic sites and outstanding examples of the early 19th century Federal style. Our tour guide talked non-stop and freely answered any questions that she received. We enjoyed the tour and recommend it to all who enjoy history and old historic homes.
