Questions about Corolla and Oracoke Island

I am looking for a place to vacation around the week of September 11 - September 18, and I was thinking about either Oracoke Island or Corolla. These two places primarily caught my attention due to the wild horses they have. I had a few questions I was hoping you could answer, which I've listed below.
1. Is is normally still warm enough in the month of September to lay on the beach and get into the ocean?
2. From what I've read, it appears that there isn't much "nightlife" in either of these destinations. Are there other places within driving distance that have more entertainment/attractions?
3. Between Oracoke Island and Corolla, which would you say offers the best beach and the best chance of seeing the horses? Do both places have guided tours to see the horses? Is there enough in either location to keep you busy for a full week?
4. Finally, can you recommend a web site or two where I can look for lodging, and do you have any recommendations on where to stay in either Corolla or Oracoke, preferably oceanfront and in a condo rather than a hotel?
Thank you for your assistance! I look forward to hearing from you!
