New Bern has always had a warm welcome for the cruising community, and, now, with the multitude of special activities associated with their 300′th anniversary, we think ALL captains should consider leaving the familiar confines of the AICW and setting their course up the Neuse River to New Bern’s waterfront.
We are at Galley Stores right now as we visit the lovely NC Mountains for a break from cruising. Mark has been very helpful by keeping a watch over Allegria. The new floating docks break up the chop on the river. The facility is top notch in every category.
New Bern is a wonderful stop and well worth the 20 mile side trip. We had visited several years ago by car but ths is the first trip up the river by boat. The town has a lot to offer. We took the trolley tour to see all of the historic homes in this colonial era capitol city.
The restaurants are great too. Pollock St Deli is a block from the marina and it serves very fresh and tasty breakfast, lunch and dinner(?)
The Chelsea restaurant nearby should not be missed. Great Food.
