31 WBM Walk to Christ Church, a structure on the National Register of Historic Places, at 320 Pollock Street in the center of downtown’s historic district. Its Gothic bell tower has been a famous town landmark — once used by mariners for navigation — for more than 130 years. Sleep, dine or dance at The Harvey Mansion, one of New Bern’s last remaining colonial-era structures. What was once the 9,000-square-foot home of ship merchant John Harvey is today a four-story restored building that houses a fine- dining restaurant, guest rooms and a popular nightspot in its open beam and brick basement. Enroll in a paint-your-own pottery program or lesson at Accidental Artist, 219-A Craven Street, and take home a self-creation. No experience is necessary, and for out-of-town visitors, the studio can ship your pottery home. Visit the New Bern Firemen’s Museum at 408 Hancock Street, the site of the town’s first central fire station. New Bern’s original firefighting crew, the 1845 Atlantic Hook and Ladder Company, was the first organized fire department in the state and one of the first in the country. www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com Sales & Rentals 800-279-6085 • 910-686-4400 www.figure8island.com Figure eight island Private gated beachfront community Ocean Front 264 Beach Road North $4,195,000 Ocean Front 328 Beach Road North $2,950,000 Ocean Front 8 Surf Court $3,995,000 Sound Front 21 Pipers Neck $2,695,000 Judy B.
