Personally, we think New Bern,
NC, is a great place to call home!
Close to beaches (but not too close to
let the hurricanes worry us greatly), with mild climate year-round but
not the bugs of Georgia and Florida, and with friendly people,
little traffic, and reasonable cost of living and home prices,
New Bern, North Carolina has been the "Southern Surprise" for
retirees and relocating families and individuals.

another great reference guide to attractions, amenities, and
resources in New Bern and the entire area is

which is available both in print and online and their
Insider Guide for New Bern Retirement web page.
Doctors, nurses and other
medical personnel also love it here since they have time to enjoy leisure and family
as well as have a great job.
Retired medical personnel often volunteer with the
local chapter of the internationally known Merci Clinic.

NEW BERN HAS WHAT IS
IMPORTANT TO RETIREES
want many of the same things in a retirement destination. New
Bern has it all, including:
"LAID BACK" NC RETIREMENT DESTINATION
"My wife and I moved down here to retire from
the Washington, DC area, and started a second career in real estate.
A lot of our family, friends
and neighbors think New Bern is great, too, as they have moved here from all
over the country and around the world for our great climate, laid back
lifestyle, "home town" friendliness and feel, and easier drive for visits to and
from friends and relatives up north or further south.
But you don't have to believe us! New Bern is consistently
listed as one of the top towns to live in and retire to in the United States (see this
article from the Today Show), and has been cited by The Today Show and
MSNBC, Money magazine, Where to Retire magazine, Southern Living
and more." Bob Bartram
TIME to HAVE
FUN and MAKE a DIFFERENCE in NEW BERN
you're retired, you will have more time to do what you already
love or explore new activities.
of our new retired friends who
have moved here have ended up getting involved in the community,
learning or pursuing fun sports or hobbies, learning a new skill
with enrichment classes, getting healthy in the senior-friendly
fitness facilities, or even starting a new career after initially coming here to retire or
relocate. From senior swim teams, outdoor activities and kayaking clubs,
to historical reenactments, and
volunteer activities started and staffed by retirees, New
Bern offers retiree many opportunities to become an active and
important segment of our community.

many senior-friendly activities to be found in New Bern
Film, Arts and Music venues the theater scene here is

and Recreation including Clubs and Hobby Groups,

groups and Social Service Organizations
NEW BERN SALUTES
New Bern is also extremely
popular with retired
military personnel, since New Bern is halfway between these
two military towns of Havelock home to Cherry Point (US Marines and Navy) and
Jacksonville, NC, home to Camp LeJeune.
This makes it easy to commute to either or
both of these installations and their facilities and activities available to
active and retired personnel.
North Carolina has been supportive of military and veterans
throughout its history, making active and retired military both
feel at home.
