On the 6th (Sat), appreciate the history behind Bamahenge. Here are some ideas for day two: get to know the resident critters at Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, then go for a stroll along the water at The Wharf, then stop by Pepper Palace, and finally fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

New York City to Orange Beach is an approximately 6.5- hour combination of bus, flight, and car. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and taxi; or drive.
