Looking for something to do beyond the beach? Corolla’s recreation scene tends to focus mostly on beautiful Mother Nature, as any respectable Outer Banks things to do should. One of the most popular Corolla things to do is to take a tour to see the Corolla wild horses. Another top Corolla recreation is going on a kayak outing to see the natural wonders of this area from a backwaters perspective—it’s quiet and unhurried and settles the soul. As with all Outer Banks recreation, fishing is huge here, so much so that you’ll see an entire section devoted to that addictive activity.
But if you have your shoes all laced up and are ready for some real action, Corolla’s things to do offer first-rate tennis courts and a fitness center, screaming go-carts, an 18-hole links course, a climbing wall, Segway tours, putt putt golf courses and hikes in a nearby nature sanctuary or just along some of Corolla’s village lanes.
It can be debated whether the premier Outer Banks thing to do is surfing or nightlife (though some would argue it’s actually shopping), but either persuasion is sufficiently supported here. Surf shops provide advise, lessons and gear. And, while Corolla’s nightlife scene isn’t as multi-faceted as that found a bit farther south, you can definitely relax with the perfect martini and live tunes.
