Local Tips for Your Visit to the Whalehead Club

  • Make sure your self-guided tour or exploration of the Historic Corolla Park doesn't end at the Whalehead. Be sure to explore the gorgeous soundfront walking trails, the Currituck Lighthouse, and the 39 acres of beautiful surrounding landscape. Bring your kayak, kite, picnic basket, or just a love of the great outdoors, and enjoy a full, pleasant day on the expansive park grounds.
  • Visitors in town for a week's summer vacation should plan a Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon here. On these weeknights you can find fun evening events, including live music from local performers and wine/beer tastings from local restaurants/breweries. 
  • Ghost hunters should definitely check out the after-hours tours and programs. The Whalehead is home to dozens of local ghost stories dating back to when the Knight's first built and resided in the home. 
  • For the more inquisitive visitor, consider the guided tour with an expert guide to make sure you have the full experience and all the information your heart desires!
