I love this place. Beautiful senery. Right near the lighthouse. Nice amenities. Bay side pool was quite and ocean side was full of excitement. Plenty of activities for everyone. Beautiful bike trails. Even a indoor pool for raining days. Plenty of homes for everyone in...More
I have made the long trip from NY to the Corolla Light Beach Resort 4 times to spend a vacation week with my family. We absolutely love the beautiful expanse of beach, the scenic historic village and lighthouse nearby and the glorious sunsets overnight. There...More
Now over 30 years since its inception, Corolla Light continues to evolve and improve. Our family spends at least a week each year. the family has changed over the years -- from young kids to young people to young professionals to, now, five grandbabies. But...More
The house we stayed in (Corolla Belle) was beautiful and right on the beach. Corolla Light in general is well groomed, clean, and fun. We have a 1 year old, so we liked taking her to the outside pools and the playground. I took advantage...More
We have been vacationing in Corolla for 18 years, and the majority of those stays have been spent in Corolla Light. We love everything about it....the amenities, the proximity to both soundfront and oceanfront activities, the beautifully manicured grounds, and the fact there are accommodations...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.
