    We visited the Palace's Gardens and Grounds, toured inside the rooms. We then had the Life on the Lesser Stairs Tour in the afternoon. I visited on the grounds the Militia Camp. We were there for 4 hours.

    I thought I was going to tour an old fireman's museum. I got a full tour by a wonderful tour guide volunteer. The best tour I have even received anywhere. Very informative. fun and a lot of history of the local area. They have so many artifacts and they are well-preserved. Definitely check this place out if you are in the area.

    This was a nicely done battlefield preservation. Plenty of signs to understand the 5 Ws of the battle (who, what, where, when, and why). Free parking.

    Being out of town we felt like at home. First we enjoyed an evening with tasting different brews they offer - I love hot spicy and the Jalepeno beer didn't disappoint, but loved they also had Selzer, cider, bubbles and super tasty CBD drink. I just adore trying out new things.

    Then the next day we had breakfast - wow their muffin and cinnamon buns were so delicious.

    We even went back on our second night too and had such a fun evening.

    It's such a great place to meet people and start sharing life stories. The staff is incredible attentive and friendly. The owner Pete the nicest owner you possible can find. You can tell his passion to produce the best quality products and to see his customers happy. Their mission to provide a community is a full success. We found a new home away from home and will be back!

    Thank you for having us!

    It was nice to hike these trails again after not having been for quite a few years. The trails are easily discernable, and marked. The temperature was in the upper 40's. The woods were peaceful, and it was nice to leisurely walk the trails while looking at the natural scenery. Notable plants and trees are marked. The trail goes by a stream. This is a free attraction. No comfort facilities. Parking may be full at busier times. Nice for families, solo, or romantic walks. Be careful not to trip on roots in the trail.

    We stopped in with our 7 year old granddaughter and she had a ball the 15 minutes before it started raining. She questioned why the park didn't have a roof!! We promised we would bring her back again the next time we were in the area. Really neat park for kids.

    Ohhhh What A Night we had. Great local talent. We watched the musical "The Producers" by Mel Brooks and enjoyed every minute. The performers were all excellent. New Bern is blessed to have such talent. The theater itself is small, but that is part of its charm.

    Great way to spend a few hours on a Saturday morning. Lots of stalls with lots of different purveyors and goods homemade items jellies jams lots of trinkets jewelry. Unfortunately late in the harvest it wasn't really a lot of farmers there just gourds and sweet potatoes but they were excellent.

    Beautiful views from this park. Plus very photogenic gazebo. Places to picnic, sidewalks for walking or biking, gray areas for playing or sunning, and some cute bear statues scattered throughout.
