If it were not for the absurd heat we experienced the day we spent in New Bern, we would have accomplished much more than we did.
This little town is adorable. The shops are so much fun, the streets are clean and well kept, the landscaping is top notch, and I was only there for a few hours. Imagine all of the wonderful things I haven’t experienced yet!
Tryon Palace in New Bern was beautiful. We didn’t purchase tickets to tour the inside of the home but we got tickets for the gardens. However, there were absolutely no flowers in bloom at the time we toured. Just our luck! haha, I can imagine the gardens are stunning when they are full of blooms and that the inside of the mansion is breathtaking as well.
I am a sucker for archways whether they’re man-made in gardens or natural trees along roadways, they always make me swoon.
If it were not for the temperatures that day we would have done a self guided Nicholas Sparks tour, but we were already struggling so we decided against it.
The shops along Middle Street are amazing and fun to wander through. Its impossible to come off of that street empty handed.
