Lazy Days of a New Bern Summer
The Summer months of June to August are a perfect time to enjoy the waterfront and explore the area.

You can also bring your fishing pole and spend some time on the pier or launch a boat or kayak into the river. If you are visiting the area with friends, schedule a tee time at one of the many local golf courses and enjoy some drinks at the bar after playing 18 holes.
Fall and winter are the least busy times of year to visit New Bern. There is more rain and the temperatures are a little cooler. This is a great time to visit the Firemen’s Museum that will fascinate all ages or spend some time at the North Carolina History Century.
