The New Bern water scene is wonderful. The Neuse River’s mouth is the widest in the United States - it spans six miles from shore to shore. You can cruise around in your vessel, take advantage of the area’s numerous boat ramps, go paddle boarding, and so much more.

However, if you want a break from captaining your vessel, you’ll have plenty of other entertainment options, including:

Make sure to check in advance, as many of these prestigious golf clubs require reservations. However, others can accommodate last-minute visits. Still, it’s wise to verify availability for your party. 


New Bern has no shortage of eateries and restaurants, many of which are just a short car ride away from Northwest Creek Marina. Grab a cup of coffee at Bella’s Cafe, test your accuracy at Beary The Hatchet Ax Throwing Co., or try some local concoctions at Brewery 99. 

These are just a few of the options located in downtown New Bern. Dock your boat at the marina, take a stroll, and let your nose be your guide.
