At the northern end of the Outer Banks on what's known as the Currituck Outer Banks, Corolla is an upscale reosrt area that caters
to vacationers with luxurious cottages, numerious shopping, dining and recreational opportunities, and of course, expansive
The area's 3,000 vacation homes are known for their lavish comforts, such as swimming pools, hot tubs, fireplaces and amazing
views. Some of them have sleeping accommodations for 20 or more and are popular places for several families to vacation
together. There are 11 planned housing developments in the Corolla area, each with a unique character. Kelly's beach Retreat is
located in Ocean Sands Section D. Ocean Sands is an ocean side community with city water/sewer, tennis, lakes, walking paths and
vast areas of open space (undeveloped land for improved ocean views). Section D is directly across from the Currituck Golf Club
and Harris Teeter shopping center. The Ten Buck Two shopping center is about 2 and one half miles North. It includes a Food Lion,
movie theater, restaurants and additional shopping.
Corolla (pronounced cor-AH-la) gets its name from the term for the inner petals of a flower. Attractions in Corolla include the 1895
red-brick Currituck Beach Lighthouse, which is open for climbing. Just south of the lighthouse is the Whalehead Club, a
copper-roofed, canary yellow mansion that literally leaps out of the surrounding landscape. It is being restored to its former 1922
hunt-club glory and will one day house a wildlife museum. Old Corolla Village, north of the lighthouse, reveals the history of this
once-isolated community with dusty unpaved roads, a one-room schoolhouse, restored homes and the charming Corolla Chapel.
North of Corolla is a four-wheel-drive area, where feral horses roam around munching on beach grass and drinking rainwater.
Several companies rent ATVs for touring this area and spying on the horses.
