Everything comes together downtown

Greater Downtown New Bern . . .

it’s where shopping, dining, history and the arts come together.

Situated at the confluence of two scenic rivers, Greater Downtown New Bern is the center for vibrant lifestyle experiences in Eastern North Carolina. Pedestrian-friendly, it is home to historic Tryon Palace, the birthplace of Pepsi, as well as great shopping, dining, museums, concerts, galleries and parks. Discover North Carolina’s second oldest town located just off of  US Highways 70 and 17.

It’s where everything has been coming together . . . for more than three hundred years.
