Corolla Village is one of the small North Carolina Outer Banks spots to babymoon for couples cooking for a beach getaway. You know you can take your pregnant wife to see Hatteras Lighthouse (198.49 feet) which is just 2 hours away.

Also, if you don’t want to ride, take her to Currituck Beach Lighthouse to click the picture of the beauty and her baby bump with the Outer Bank and the Atlantic Ocean in the backdrop. I would also recommend going to Audubon Sanctuary and Centre at Pine Island.

The best things to do in Corolla Village are to enjoy the beach, explore art galleries, shop bonanza, and have yummy food from various restaurants. My favorite place is Tim Buck II Shopping Village, as I could find plenty of seafood places and vendors overlooking Currituck Sound.

  • Location: West North Carolina, Highlight sits 4, 100 feet above sea level
  • Specialty of the The Highland, NC: The surrounding peaks, valley, and the clean view of Mother Nature

My sister has always loved mountains, so during her babymoon planning, I took everything into my hands and organized everything. I wanted her to enjoy the peaceful mountain air along with the eye-popping gifts of nature, so there’s nothing greater than Highland.

She stayed at Vineyard in Scaly Mountains, a little offbeat from Highland but that’s what I wanted, a secluded spot. I remember she called me in the night to tell that how every evening she and Kelvin (her husband) played cards and she defeated him!

Whenever she had sweet cravings at night, Kelvin took her to Midpoint Highlands for tasty ice creams. Now, the property has a lake and sits within the tall trees.


  • On Saturday, check the Farmer Market at Founders Park to buy souvenirs for your family
  • Don’t miss out on Cashiers, another beautiful spot where you can consider staying. Enjoy some fantastic spa sessions here. My sister even came here to try out Bucks Coffee
