Think Local!

At AquaventuresNC we are commited to the New Bern area. We have a host of great local businesses that provide everything from great food to great wine. We have relationships with some of these businesses. Some of them we just like a lot. So, we want to share with you the ones with which we have had great experiences. We like them a lot, and we bet you will, too.


Cravin' Wine is a fabulous wine shop located at 2500 Trent Road, Suite 16, New Bern, NC 28562. Cravin' Wine provides the sparkling wines that are part of our Champagne Cruises. (Amy Lynn, the owner, very gently reminded me that we cannot legally call the bubbly we provide "Champagne" because that is a name that may only be used by winemakers in the Champagne Region of France that produce that special sparkling wine under the "rules of appellation." But, "Champagne Cruise" just sounds so much better than "Sparkling Wine Cruise" or "Bubbly Cruise." Sooo . . . ) Cravin' Wine specializes in wines produced by small, regional wineries. So, stop in and spend some time with Amy. I have no doubt she can help you find that special wine you have been looking for.

Meadows Inn Bed and Breakfast

Meadows Inn Bed and Breakfast is a charming and historic inn located at 212 Pollock Street New Bern, North Carolina 28560 (252.634.1776). Linda, the owner, is a wonderful and intersting person who maintains the highest quality standards while keeping a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The Meadows Inn has many beautifully appointed rooms, each with its own charm and historic name. As Linda describes it: "At Meadows Inn we believe that our 'Innkeeping style' is one of unobtrusive casual comfort with warmth and informality."

Famous Baking Company

Famous Baking Company (2210 Neuse Blvd, New Bern, NC 28560) is, well, I don't know how famous it is, but it is exceptional! Customers have brought birthday cakes from Famous Baking Company and shared them with me. Wow! Best cakes I have ever had. And, I have been in there more times than I care to admit. It is all good, and the staff are very helpful and patient as I try to decide what not to eat. If you have a special event coming up, you can't go wrong with a cake from the Famous Baking Company. Remember, it's good to share.
