"Quiet retreat from the main part of town"

River Bend was a great place to live. The website for River Bend describes it well "Small in size, and young in age, the Town of River Bend is living proof that great things come in small packages. Chartered in 1981, River Bend offers a variety of housing styles, with many homes offering waterfront on the Trent River and Plantation Canal, or along the fairways of the privately owned River Bend Country Club. A progressive community of approximately 3,100 residents, the Town of River Bend is a great place to visit, and even a better place to live." We enjoyed the quiet and friendly neighbors we had when we lived there. The townhouse we rented backed up to the water and it was a nice place to come home to and relax in after work. Utilities were cheaper then the main part of the city of New Bern as River Bend is not under the city utility company. Well maintained neighborhood and had that small town feel. The walking and fitness trails were great. Not too far from downtown New Bern and still within close distance to shopping. This is one neighborhood I truly miss living in.
