Inspired by historic coastal living communities like New Bern, and reflective of the social living among friends that many seek, Carolina Colours was designed and programmed to make residence fun and comfortable. Nearly all visitors to New Bern comment on the friendliness showed them in shops, restaurants and historic places and how welcoming the residents of Carolina Colours are. Just some of the regularly scheduled activities:

  • Friday night community dinners and Tuesday night “to go” dinners
  • Warm weather cul-de-sac gatherings weekly
  • Card games (duplicate and social bridge and more)
  • Mahjong
  • Yoga
  • Exercise classes
  • Knitting
  • Quilting
  • Walking and biking


Natural Setting

Perhaps the best amenities are those that occur naturally. Blessed with a forested site, bisected by Brice Creek, and with abundant preserved wetlands and good topography, simply living within and moving throughout Carolina Colours is a pleasure. With community parks and natural areas set aside and providing great views of the 25-acre Carolina Lake, and with pedestrian, bike and golf cart routes readily available, one is likely to see more people than cars while strolling along.
