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!

It was a great trip. Patty designed our travel so there were three hours at the mall, plenty of time to have lunch as well as shop. Patty is a great hostess, offering water and snacks during the bus ride. I look forward to my next trip by Patty.

We had a wonderful time.....love traveling with Patty......Can't wait for our next adventure. Thank you Patty and crew, Maureen
A wonderful shopping trip. I always have a great time on Trips by Patti. And I will continue to take her trips.
We all had a wonderful time, even with the rain. The tours were very interesting, especially the Gullah tour, which was very eye opening. I lived in the area for three years and had no clue about the history of Beaufort. Patty is a GEM!
My husband and I enjoyed Beaufort SC. We met great people on the bus trip, laughed a lot, enjoyed dining at local restaurants, and learned some History. The accomodations were comfortable and a great location close to Downtown Beaufort. Patty always is well organized an ensures her travelers are happy, comfortable, and are enjoying the traveling experience.
