New Bern Travel Guide: 43 reviews and 146 photos

During our week at a condo on Atlantic Beach in March of 2005, we spend one day at New Bern. I thought about taking the free NC ferry across the Neuse River, but Bob said "No more ferries". We crossed the drawbridge over the Trent River and got to New Bern about 11

After some detours because they were cutting down trees on the street next to the Palace, we got to the visitor's center and were able to visit the Governor's Palace

We also drove around town to see the historic houses. I have a lot of additional photos in the travelogues

    I'd say unless there is a sign specifically prohibiting photos, don't take anybody at their word. Tell them they should put up a sign, snap away, and fight them if they try to take your camera.
