For 20 years I worked in Kinston and lived in New Bern. New Bern is located at the convergence of two beautiful rivers and is a vibrant community to live and play in. We have great public and private schools for your children (look at the education ratings for New Bern - they are A+). I live in an area called Olde Towne which is located on the Trent River. It is 2 miles from US 70 and then a straight shot to Kinston. Let me help you find the perfect home. Nancy Stallings

I would choose specifically River Bend. It is a very friendly community and very close to the new bypass to reach Highway 70...Let me know if I can help.

what ages are your children? What's important to you about the neighborhood you live in? And what's important about the house?

I suggest that you check out New Bern. I have lived in New Bern for 15 years and love it here. I think you will find the school system better than the surrounding areas, and we also have christian and other private school if that is your choice. The history here is wonderful and the people friendly. Hope this helps.

My husband and I were just passing through New Bern a few years ago and spontaneously decided to move here. I often wish that my children could have grown up here. It's a quaint, historical town that embraces newcomers to the area. The beach is only 35 miles away, but there's so much to do on the water right here! New Bern is at the confluence of 2 rivers--the Trent and the Neuse, with water skiing, sailing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. While we have good public schools, many families here also look for alternatives and Parrott Academy in Kinston has been a popular choice for many years. However, The Epiphany School here in New Bern continues to amaze and astound. This relatively new school is very involved in the community, has a rigorous academic program and, from my understanding, is adding grades each year. (The school began as a high school and is working its way down to elementary school.) Whether you like the feel of a gated community, the historic district, a waterfront community or a rural home, you will find it all in this area. The advantage of New Bern is also the numerous activities for children. Our NC History Center and Tryon Palace always offer something new. Our thriving community theatres have great workshops and programs for young people. And, of course, there's always Camp Seagull and Camp Seafarer just down the road for a fantastic summer camp experience. Regardless of where you are moving FROM you are moving TO a place you can truly call home. Hope this helps!
