About this trip

Could this be the next Hamilton?  You can see for yourself when you join this day trip to New Bern for the World Premier of Honour, The Musical.  
It’s North Carolina's most notorious affair of honor - the Stanly-Spaight Duel.  The story of the Spaight-Stanly duel is one of New Bern's most compelling.  A young legislator goads an older statesman in a heated political contest.  The older man insults the younger.  All in public.  In newsprint.  Add the story of Sarah Rice, favored slave of the Spaights, who had a son by John Stanly.  Combine it with the knowledge and wit of writer Bill Hand and the music of Simon Spalding and you have Honour, The Musical.


New Bern is a city with a rich historic, racial and cultural heritage. It is also a city rich in artistic talent with two large theater companies and an active musical performance scene. This production draws on all of these to present parallel stories of one of North Carolina’s most famous conflicts, the Stanly-Spaight duel, along with a related story of an early 19th century African American experience.

I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!

For me, there was not enough information given about the house and the man that built it. We spent the better part of two days in the bus traveling and only spent about two hours touring the house. And for me, but not my wife, there was way too much time allotted for shopping. I can appreciate those who enjoyed the Downton Abbey display, but I had not watched the tv show and would much rather spent time in the Biltmore house or on the grounds. I did get some information from photographs and writings on the wall of the hotel and from the lecture in the church in the village. But, with so much to learn, I did not think we allocated our time efficiently. Jim Gunther

We had a great time. Very organized and the lights were terrific.
This trip was alot of fun. Patty did a great job organizing this event. Looking forward to another trip in 2020.
This was a fun trip. We had a great time with friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience at Mike's Farm. Patty did a great job organizing this trip for us!
A fun experience. We would definitely go again. The southern cooking was plentiful and delicious. We were excited to see a patriotic and religious light show. A great family outing.
