Best places to stay in the Outer Banks area in North Carolina?

The hubby and I will be flying up to the OBX area in July and we cant decide if we want to stay in Duck, NC or Corolla, NC. We want to book a vacation rental for 6 weeks and have easy access to the beach. We will have 7 kids and 3 families.

So far all I can find is information about Duck on https://www.twiddy.com/outer-banks/duck/ and then Corolla rental info on https://www.outerbanks.com/corolla.html

I'm leaning more towards the Corolla area as it seems to have a lot more to offer.

Thanks for the recommendations in advance!

My vote is Corolla Light Resort. We always book through Brindley Beach Vacations. http://www.brindleybeach.com/
Our favorite house is named "Happy Daze" and appears to have been completely remodeled over the Winter.

Carolla is a little closer to more "stuff" but you're going to have a hard time going wrong either way. The northern outer banks are a little more remote than the southern ones, but that's part of the reason people go there. ;-)

Most of the central and northern Outer Banks are very beautiful, so as another poster said, you probably can't go wrong either way.

If you all are planning to spend more time "doing stuff" (not shopping), then I think Corolla has more to offer in terms of outdoor activities.
