Corolla is the northernmost town on the Outer Banks that is accessible by road. Until 1984, Corolla was a sleepy little village, with wild ponies roaming through the streets.

The Whalehead Club which was built by northern millionaires as a 'hunting lodge' in the 1920s is now being restored as a waterfowl museum.

But for me Corolla is really about the Currituck Beach Lighthouse. The Whalehead Club was built next to the 180 foot red brick lighthouse which is open for climbing and has a small museum and a restored lightkeeper's house.

There is also a bird sanctuary (the Pine Island Audubon Sanctuary) which is between Duck (the next village south) and Corolla.
