Orange Beach

Orange Beach exists solely as a tourist beach town, with a permanent population of less than 6,000.
Bring the kids along to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Parasailing & Paragliding. Change things up with these side-trips from Orange Beach: Fort Morgan State Historic Site (in Fort Morgan) and Alligator Alley (in Summerdale). There's still lots to do: cast your line with a fishing tour, hike along Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, get in on the family fun at The Wharf, and enjoy breathtaking views from Wharf Ferris Wheel.

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. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from New York City to Orange Beach due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from New York City in March: high temperatures in Orange Beach hover around 69°F and lows are around 51°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Mobile.
