This fall, whether you are looking to do something bucket-list worthy or searching for some down time to relax on the beaches with someone you love, Corolla Outer Banks is the coastal Outer Banks beach locale you have been dreaming of. On the Northern most part of the Outer Banks, Corolla is the perfect place to take on an adventure at your own pace. It has all the activities you expect on the Outer Banks with beautiful beaches, OBX history, wild horses, water activities, golf, local seafood, farmers markets, and more.
If adventure is what you want, don’t miss the chance of a lifetime to see the Corolla Wild Horses, located in the unpaved area of Carova, freely roaming the beaches. Settling here over 400 years ago, these local legends are truly awe inspiring. You can experience them by taking a wild horse tour with one of our many wild horse tour companies, or, if you have a 4×4 vehicle, you can drive yourself and explore the area of Carova at your own pace. Please be mindful of the horses, driving rules, and permits when touring the area. We want to protect these wild animals for years to come, so stay 50 feet away from them and do not feed them.
If history excites you, the Historic Corolla Park has four main historic attractions including the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, Historic Whalehead Museum, Currituck Maritime Museum, and Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education. Learn about the hunting, maritime history, and traditions of this area as well as taking in exhibits on the wildlife and culture that make up this beautiful island paradise.
The beaches in Corolla are some of the best in the world. With the wide, pristine, sandy beaches you expect from the Outer Banks, you have all of the space you need to enjoy the beauty and sunshine. Catch glimpses of dolphins and pelicans as they pass by, and, as the water is still mild in the fall months, you can still take an opportunity to get your feet wet.
Corolla is surrounded by water, and you can have just as much fun on the Currituck Sound as you can on the ocean. There are a multitude of water activities from kayaking to paddleboarding, and the Sound is the perfect place to catch a glorious sunset.
In the mood to stroll about and find something unique to take home? A bike ride through one of our many shopping locations will give you plenty of shopping or dining options after being on the beach all day. In the mood for seafood? Stop in one of our many locally sourced seafood restaurants that will be sure to fill that craving.
Make Corolla part of your fall escape plans. Dream now, visit soon.
