We spent some time in the Carolinas for work and naturally spent some time exploring the sights. One of our first weekends there we visited New Bern because it is the second-oldest European-American colonial town in North Carolina.
One of the cities highlights is Tryon Palace, originally the governor's mansion before the state capital moved to Raleigh when the original building burned to the ground. What stands in place now is a replica from the 1950's but many of the artifacts inside are originals. Unfortunately, photography inside the buildings are not allowed so here are photos of the grounds.
