Two years ago we were searching for a beach destination close to Maryland but didn’t want to go to the normal tourist traps: Ocean City, Maryland, Rehobeth Delaware, or Virginia Beach, Virginia. Fortunately, we stumbled upon
Corolla, North Carolina on the Outer Banks (OBX). We chose Corolla because of it’s proximity to Washington, DC; the low keyed crowds and affordable housing.
Corolla /kəˈrɑːlə/ is an unincorporated community located in Poplar Branch township, Currituck County, North Carolina along the northern Outer Banks. It has a permanent population of approximately 500 people; during the summer vacation season, the population surges into the thousands. Corolla is home to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, one of the seven North Carolina coastal lighthouses.

If you are looking for an alternate destination this summer to the crowded mid-Atlantic beaches Corolla, North Carolina is the place for you and your family.
