Our group rented two places near the clubhouse. We had previously stayed in Kitty Hawk so the drive north and the 2 hours it took to go 19 miles was something new for me. I think the best bet is to stay in a hotel...More
The Corolla Light Resort is a great family vacation. A short walk or bike ride to Whalehead and the light house. Our kids ran a 5k from Whalehead one morning also. There is a lot to offer for kids of all ages and plenty of...More

I've stayed here many times in the past. The community is very nice especially if you have kids. There is always something fun to do. The pool area is nice and the restaurant/bar is perfect for lunch.
This summer I stayed at the Trade Winds...More
We rented from Brindley Beach on June 1, 2014. The house # was 605 in Corolla Light. When we arrived none of the TV's were working. They could not help with the problem and I had to call the Cable company. They had to send...More

There's a lot to do in Corolla, especially in Corolla Light. I suggest checking out the Corolla Light web site. I can't post the link, but google corolla light resort and you'll find it. Click on the "Things to Do" tab at the top and then click "see the sites" and you can read about local attractions. Click on "get active" to see a description of activity related resort amenities, and click on "weekly activities/classes" to see a calendar of planned weekly activities, great if you have kids. If you click on the "more" tab, you can also find links for restaurants, shopping, and other recreation; the Corolla Adventure Park sounds interesting (haven't been there myself yet).
I've never stayed in the Worley House, but I looked it up on the web site and see that it's on Miller Ct. Corolla Light runs a trolley service to take people to the beach, and according to the map of trolley stops located on the site it looks like there's a trolley stop right in front of your house, so that's probably the easiest way to get to the beach, and the trolley will drop you off at the ocean front pool complex. To walk it looks like you would walk north on Rt. 12 about 5 minutes to Shad St., and then cut over to the beach on Shad, probably another 5 minutes.
In terms of places to eat Northbanks is probably my favorite, located in Tim Buck II shopping center, but it's very popular and can be a long wait. I haven't eaten at Urban Kitchen yet, but it gets great reviews - I've read the owner/chef tries to source all ingredients locally. Agave Roja in food lion shopping center is very good Mexican. For good beef & seafood you plan to cook yourself, check out the Butcher Block, also in Food Lion shopping center.
Oh, one more thing, the Outer Banks Center For Wild Life Education is located in Corolla, just a mile north of your home. They run a lot of really interesting programs, but they book up EARLY, so don't wait until you get there to check it out or you'll be to late. You can get to their site from the Corolla Light site, I suggest checking it out now and if there's something you want to do call them now to reserve your spot.
