Hi everyone,
My husband and I are having a scouting trip in mid-September for possible relocation spots, including the Raleigh area followed by New Bern. My work schedule is rigid so we are leaving on the 17th and returning on the 24th of September. We had planned to stay in New Bern the weekend of the 23rd and drive back home to NY from there, but I see that an arts festival is being held at the convention center. Sounds great, but is this the type of event that will clog all local roads, making parking downtown and finding a room tougher, or a self-contained little event that shouldn't create concern. Just unsure if we should alter the timing of our arrival accordingly. Maybe reversing the itinerary entirely? Thanks in advance for any advice.

No problem. New Bern is small and other will the festival. It will be interesting and entertaining, but not obtrusive.

Thanks for this LLN, it's a great help. On paper, this town sounds promising. Just don't know if our budget (low 200s at the most) can find us something downtown proper. With a large and active dog, that may be problematic.

Downtown proper, in one of the fancy old homes is ont gonna happen for $200K. There are some homes in the Riverside Historic District about a mile north of downtown, that are around that price. I am sure there are others, as wel.
