Corolla Outer Banks is known for its wild horses and beautiful family-friendly beaches — but what keeps families coming back year after year? One observation is that it is filled with nostalgia. It brings back memories of a time without the need for cellphones or urban landscapes. One will be in constant awe of its beauty and untamed nature.
Corolla Outer Banks and the mainland of Currituck, North Carolina, is a sanctuary for coastal birds, dolphins, and oh yes, those wild horses that roam these beaches. It allows you to play games like naming the horses and then renaming them again next year when you return. Corolla provides the perfect escape to have that child-like wonder that we all cherish and brings you back to memories you had as a kid on vacation with your family, when simpler games and the great outdoors was what you called a real vacation.
In addition to the abundance of nature, Corolla’s vast, beautiful beaches keep visitors coming back year after year. Corolla’s wide, sandy beaches make for a perfect family vacation day … running along the shore, chasing shorebirds, perfecting the art of building sandcastles, or sitting there thinking about nothing while the waves crash around your toes. Whatever you imagine as your perfect beach vacation, we have it here.
Bringing your children back to Corolla is a tradition that creates memories that you will always treasure. Watch your kids or other loved ones grow with each year as you redo the same putt-putt golf course, kayak with the same expedition company or buy that new kite from the local beach shop year after year.
