New Bern North Carolina - Jake's Home Town

Jake Grant makes his home in New Bern and he's agreed to share some of his photos with us. Jake jogs down this street every morning. Jake's gym is just around the corner and it's a convenient place to begin and end his run.

 This is Jake's favorite coffee shop. They serve the best tomato-basil rolls. He loves to stop by here for a protein shake after a hard workout. Most mornings you can find him sitting outside after the gym rush has ended.
 Another area where Jake spends a lot of time. There's a small park across the street where Jake takes his lunch when he wants to experience some quiet time outside.

 The city of New Bern is into art. They are famous for the sculptures and well manicured lawns. It's a lovely town to live in and a lovely place to visit. Jake enjoys the cultural revival that has taken place in New Bern and looks forward to the many events the city offers.
The art's and museum district of New Bern is rather large for such a small down. Jake loves walking through the town when he's got a lot on his mind.
 Lance lives in this area. He loves the quaint streets and quite neighborhood.
Jake and Lance enjoy walks by this row of homes. They dream of owning one of these two historical houses one day.

 New Bern is famous for their bears. To coincide with New Bern’s 300th Anniversary Celebration in 2010, Bear Town Bears, a nonprofit organization, recruited local artists to implement hand-painted designs on life-size standing and walking fiberglass bears for public enjoyment during the entire year. Now the Bears are spread throughout the town.
There is always something fun to do in New Bern. Whether it's boating, playing at the parks or just enjoying the city, New Bern is a great place to live, work and visit. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the places that Jake loves. Enjoy reading Working It Out
