Halfway between the historically rich New Bern and the blue beaches of the Crystal Coast is the town of Havelock, North Carolina. Originally named as “Havelock Station”, this military town is as historic as its neighbor, New Bern. Havelock is surrounded with military history and the town is marked with artifacts and landmarks which remind the newer generations of the past.
Being home to the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, one of the country’s largest Marine Corps air stations, you can hear what locals call “the sound of freedom” from the roars and rumbles of jets and helicopters up in the sky.
In keeping with its military background, the town also houses an Aviation Museum and a 9/11 Memorial Plaza. Various aviation exhibits and artifacts are preserved in the museums and a few aircrafts are open for public viewing in the exhibit area. One of the well-known aircrafts is the historic Grumman F-11A Tiget Jet, which is on display at Lawson Creek Park in New Bern.
Beyond the memorials, museums, the jaw-dropping sight of military artifacts and the exhilarating sound of jets, Havelock is also an enigmatic town budding with social activities and opportunities. The town is mushroomed with shops, entertainment, and an eclectic variety of food choices.
Havelock hosts its Annual Chili Festival where chefs participate in cook-offs to determine who has the best tasting chili. This festival is just one of the many activities the town has to offer. It is a desirable destination for people who are looking for a place rich in history and culture while also possessing cultural diversity.
