It is possible to ride from the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla to Bodie Island Light in Nags Head. This is a car distance of 36 miles. You’ll only be on the main road for about five or six miles, and there’s a wide shoulder along the highway.
There are few experiences as breathtaking as the Spanish mustang herds that run wild and free along the shores of Corolla. There are over 100 colonial Spanish mustangs living on about 7,544 acres of wild horse sanctuary in Corolla, and these beautiful animals have been roaming our shores for over 500 years. While staying at one of our Outer Banks Corolla rentals, set aside some time during your vacation to witness these majestic horses.
It’s hard to imagine, especially during summer months when thousands of people turn our beach towns into cities, that the Outer Banks is much more than a strip of sandy beaches, great restaurants and endless vacation homes. For your enjoyment, here are five interesting facts to educate you on our area, creating fun trivia topics while travelling.
“Thank you for everything you do. My family and I rented By Grace #225, for Bike Week and it was absolutely perfect. All of my children are grown and I now have a couple of grandchildren. Other than Christmas, it is rare that we all get together. This was the first time in two plus years. All but one of my five children either rides or are involved with someone that rides, so Bike Week is a great for us. The combination of the location and floor plan of the house contributed greatly to our wonderful vacation experience. The beauty of the area combined with the hospitality of all the local people and businesses also were major factors in our vacation being awesome. All of my children agree that this vacation was comparable to the Disney stuff we did with them when they were young! Thanks again.”
