Corolla’s hidden gems

Not long ago, Corolla was a little-known town tucked away between the Atlantic Ocean and the Currituck Sound. The area’s pristine beaches were a local secret until the 1980s, when some timely development turned this community into a thriving vacation hot spot. Travelers may flock to Corolla vacation rentals for the surf, sea, and sand, but what keeps them coming back is the region’s cultural offerings—from the towering Currituck Beach Lighthouse to the decadent Art Nouveau stylings of the Whalehead, the town is packed with glittering gems that are finally enjoying their moment in the sun.

Corolla shopping secrets

Retail therapy isn’t just a pastime in Corolla—it’s a passion. Residents flock to the shopping centers that dot the region on rainy days to engage in some bargain-hunting; several malls even offer activities designed to keep kids entertained while their parents are busy browsing. The TimBuck II Shopping Village has water sports and go-carting, while the Monteray Shores Shopping Plaza has a climbing wall and movie theater to occupy the little ones. Most stores are locally owned and operated, meaning that a laid-back Outer Banks beach vibe and Corolla sophistication is on full display wherever you go.

A whale of a time in Corolla

Whalehead, a stunning Art Nouveau manor covering 39 acres along the Currituck Sound, was built in 1925 as a gift from Edward Collings Knight Jr. to his wife Mary Louise. The home was completely restored in the 1990s and is now a resplendent tribute to the glamour of this bygone era. Guided tours give you a thrilling insight into the history of this storied building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and some visitors have even reported seeing spooky specters as they roam the halls.

Corolla’s climate at a glance

Corolla vacation rentals are in perennial demand, in large part thanks to North Carolina’s consistent year-round climate. Like most beach towns, prices spike in the warm summer months, when average temperatures hover in the high 70s, so booking early is necessary if you’re after a beachfront vacation rental in Corolla. Winters are mild, meaning that many outdoor activities are still an option, so why not search for a deal in this off-season period? You can enjoy a festive shopping break and avoid the lines at the top attractions, while also nabbing the best deals on rentals in the area.

Corolla—a wild ride

Located in Historic Corolla Park, the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education is the go-to spot to discover this region’s natural heritage. A 5,000 sq. ft. gallery explores the wildlife and ecology of the Corolla area, while an enormous aquarium showcases a wide variety of specimens from the Currituck Sound. If you’re fortunate enough to get a Corolla vacation rental near the park, you’ll have the chance to visit the Corolla Wild Horse Museum or, even better, see these majestic creatures on the beach outside your front door, providing a perfect photo op to commemorate your stay.
