The gorgeous weather, highs around 80ºF with no humidity, was perfect to enjoy the many attractions of the area; from fishing and sailing on the Neuse River, to swimming at nearby beaches, to visiting historical sites. A new visitor/convention center on the river has information on New Bern and the surrounding areas.

Fairfield Harbour is situated among the tall pines along the banks of the Neuse River that leads to the Intercoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. It's great for golfing, boating, swimming, fishing, and sightseeing. Nearby is the historic city of New Bern, North Carolina's first capital.

So much privacy! Such a beautiful location! Well-equipped units made it easy to prepare a complete Thanksgiving dinner. The well laid-out units made this family reunion vacation a memorable experience. This resort is on a creek that feeds the Neuse River, making access to the river for boating very easy.

We enjoyed our stay at Fairfield Harbour. It was a very nice resort, and the people there were very helpful. We visited historical homes in New Bern. On the Outer Banks we visited several lighthouses and a fort; it was very educational. We rode ferry boats from island to island.
