About Currituck County, North Carolina
Located in the northeastern corner of North Carolina, Currituck County on the Outer Banks offers visitors a surprisingly diverse environment -- we have something for everyone.
We're famous for our beaches, and summer is a great time for a family beach vacation. But every season brings something special to the Currituck Outer Banks -- in the fall, the weather is warm and mild through October, and the water temperatures are still perfect for swimming. Springtime brings warm weather, blooming flowers, and foals joining the Corolla wild horse herd. And while winter may not immediately make you think of a beach vacation, the peace and quiet are the perfect setting for a restful weekend or romantic getaway.
And we have more to offer besides our beaches -- for nature and wildlife enthusiasts, we have birdwatching and the Mackey Island National Wildlife Refuge. The Currituck Sound is great for kayaking, and there are several paths and hiking trails around Corolla -- including the Corolla Greenway. And if you're interested in the long and fascinating histories of both Corolla and the Currituck mainland, you'll find plenty of historical activities and opportunities to learn about life in a different time.
