Corolla Attractions:

Currituck Beach Lighthouse & Gift Shop

The Currituck Beach Lighthouse was built in 1875 and features an unpainted exterior to distinguish it from other regional lighthouses. The Currituck Beach Lighthouse and Museum Shop are open daily in season 9AM to 5PM. The lighthouse was built to fill the last remaining "dark spot" of the NC coast between Bodie Island and Cape Henry, VA. Views from the top of the lighthouse are breathtaking and not to be missed.

The Whalehead Club at Currituck Heritage Park

The Whalehead Club features unique Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts style architecture and Tiffany light fixtures. The club is open for tours year round and offers group and self-guided tours. Built in October of 1922 by Northern Industrialist Edward Collings Knight, Jr. and his bride Marie Louise LeBel, the Whalehead Club was originally a 21,000 sq.ft. private residence. Its location on the Currituck Sound and the Atlantic Flyway was perfect to satisfy the Knight's passion for waterfowl hunting. It has withstood hurricanes and nor'easters, witnessed a series of owners, and entertained hundreds of visitors from 1925 to 1970. In 1992, Currituck County purchased the badly deteriorated Whalehead Club in the interest of historic preservation. Today, the Whalehead Club is an intricate part of Currituck Heritage Park. Situated on 39 acres of sound front property, the public is invited to tour this newly restored "jewel by the sea".

Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education

The Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education offers exhibits and programs about coastal North Carolina's wildlife and habitats, natural history and cultural heritage. The center also features special presentations and programs for children. Admission is free.

The main attraction in Corolla is the oceanfront - miles and miles of wide, open beaches that are lined with single-family vacation rental homes.
