New Bern is a dog friendly place. While there is a leash law in the city limits, the outlying communities do not have leash laws. I live inTrent Woods where you must register your dog to insure that every dog has properly been administered rabies innoculations, but there is no leash law. I do not let my dog out of the fenced back yard without a leash for her safety, however. The is a dog park where your dog can play with other dogs. You must register, once again to insure that all dogs have been innoculated and pay a $35.00 annual fee.

We frequently take our goldendoodle downtown as she loves to meet people and she is always well received.

I love New Bern. It is a small town but it is very friendly. There are many small specialty shops down town and some interestig eateries. However, if you enjoy a fast paced nightlife, then New Bern is not for you. It is very much a family oriented and retirement oriented area.

New Bern sits at the confleuence of two rivers, the Trent and the Neuse. The Neuse leads to the Pamlico Sound, not Albamarle Sound, which emtied into the Atlantic. Boating, fishing and water sports are popular.

We experience four seasons, but winter is mild.

I've lived here over 10 years. I grew up in Florida and lived 13 years in Asheville and I am glad I am in New Bern. I hope you will like it as well.

New Berne is BEAUTIFUL, and if the river and the charming downtown aren't enough, you can park your boat there and always haul it to the ocean, which is about 45-50 minutes away.

I visited it last year for a symposium, and it was just a lovely place.

I love Mims! I am originally from Miami and spent summers at New Smyrna and St. Augustine. Mims was always a fun sort of wide spot in the road. Going the other way, toward Sorrento, was nice too. Right now I am in Rocky Mount and love it. But it's true, the locals are sometimes a little backward, but that alos makes the pace of life her slow and easy.
