Corolla NC Activities & Programs

Even though it used to be a quiet village 20 years ago, Corolla has turned into a vacation destination thriving with summer, spring and fall activities. Corolla NC activities are available to entertain you, broaden your mind, invigorate your body or sweeten your soul throughout the summer and the rest of the year. These activities center around our glorious natural playground of the North Carolina Outer Banks and immerse you in the culture.

Corolla is home to one of the Outer Banks’ most featured attractions: the Corolla wild horses. While the idea of seeing a horse in the wild might seem unlikely, many Corolla NC activities focus on making sure that you get a chance to watch these horses frolic in their natural habitat. During time spent in Corolla, you can go on open air jeep and van tours to see the wild horses – you’ll feel like you’re on a safari! Another Corolla NC activity could be checking out the beautiful Whalehead mansion in historic Corolla to get a taste of the beach in the 1920s while also learning a few ghost stories that surround the building’s history. If you’d prefer to keep your visit to Whalehead on a less paranormal realm, check out the parties, events and functions often held there. And since you’re at the beach, take advantage of the Corolla geography and seize the chance to dip your toes in the ocean or sound with paddle trips, parasailing, fishing trips or sailing expeditions.

Corolla’s activities are great for all ages. You can check out kayaking and surfing lessons, rent bikes to explore Corolla with, go on a charter fishing trip or find games of volleyball and cornhole that’ll bring out everyone’s competitive spirit. Check the listings below to find what you can do and where you can do it.

A simple click will take you to a local's perspective on all the Corolla activities you can do. And if you're curious to find out about every fun Outer Banks activity and program you can do, there's a site for that too!
