Do you enjoy visiting new, interesting places? If so, "Day Tripping" is just the thing for you! The Newcomers Club organizes monthly group trips to various events and tours of interesting locations within driving distance of New Bern. Some trips last most of the day and others only a few hours. Some have a fee; others are free! Go on all the trips or select just the ones suited especially for you! Day trips are a great way to meet and get to know fellow newcomers!

Check out this website for upcoming day trips. Learn more about each day trip and sign up at a monthly membership meeting. Contact the activity leader(s) for more information.

To Attend:

Interested members will be emailed details of a scheduled activity several weeks in advance. Simply show up at the location at the scheduled day and time. There is no limit on the number of participants.  To be added to the group's email list, sign up at a general meeting or email the group leader.
