Winters in Oriental

The weather has cooled off,the crowds have thinned out, and now is a great time to experience Oriental!! You can start your day with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate at The Bean or get a stick to your ribs breakfast at Brantley’s. After that, spend some time on a Saturday checking out our Farmer’s market or one of our local shops. Marsha’s Cottage and Nautical Wheeler’s will get you outfitted Down East style, The Inland Waterway Treasury Company has a gallery full of artwork to explore, and the Provision Company can take care of all you sailing supply needs. Before you get a great dinner at M & M Cafe, or The Silos, be sure to spend some time cruising the waterfront or exploring the charm of our village. Don’t forget to cap off the evening at Nel’s Sports Bar!!

The river may have cooled off, but you can still spend a great day on the water touring one of the many creeks of the Neuse, and our stable of world-class guides know just where to find the fish!

Oriental is just a few minutes away from historic downtown New Bern. Touring Tryon Palace, walking through the historic district, and stopping in for a great meal at one of the many local restaurants is a great way to get to know the area! Don’t forget that we are also very close to the Crystal Coast! After a short ferry ride across the river, you can spend the day touring the famous waterfronts of Beaufort and Morehead City. The beaches of Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach are always calling!!

Don’t let the fact that it is cool outside keep you from spending a great weekend Down East in Oriental. We here at River Neuse Suites would love to be your host for a peaceful, quiet getaway. Come unplug with us and recharge those personal batteries!!photo 1
