My parents are travelling here for my graduation in December and they wanted to see the ocean. I've not been to New Bern yet and wanted to see it and thought it might be a good base point for visiting the coast (given the season we won't spend much time at the beach, just a quick visit). Any recommendations for places to stay that will allow 3 adults in a room? We are on a budget so would prefer around 70-120 price range per night. If possible, I'd love to find a place near the water or somewhere historic as opposed to right off the highway. We are open to hotels, B&Bs, and vacation rentals so long as it fits in our budget. Also looking for things to do in December since laying out at the beach during the day isn't an option. We would be interested in historical, nautical, holiday, etc. Thanks!
