Corolla Profile


Overview

Corolla is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of North Carolina. With a population of 594 people and just one neighborhood, Corolla is the 479th largest community in North Carolina.

Corolla home prices are not only among the most expensive in North Carolina, but Corolla real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Corolla isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Corolla are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Corolla is a town of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Corolla who work in sales jobs (18.90%), management occupations (10.67%), and food service (10.06%).

A relatively large number of people in Corolla telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.81% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Corolla is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Corolla has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Corolla has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Corolla than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Corolla may be for you.

One of the nice things about Corolla is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Corolla spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 16.89 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Corolla is a very car-oriented town. 78.25% of residents commute to work in a private automobile rather than by other means, such as public transit, bicycling, or walking. This is because Corolla is a small town , and most people who live here have to drive out of town for work, and the town population is not large nor dense enough to support an extensive public transportation system. Corolla has a lot of rural roads, and houses can be far apart. Many residents drive out of town for regular shopping trips as well.

As is often the case in a small town, Corolla doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
