With the long hot summer this year, you only have a few choices for beating
the heat. You can exhaust yourself shopping at the local mall for new
lightweight resort wear and spend an equal amount of time worrying how you
will look in your new, expensive clothes. Or, you can decide to pack light for
this year's vacation. Real light in fact. All you will need to wear is your
birthday suit, suntan lotion, and a smile. This is the year you should finally
try staying at a clothing optional resort.
I can hear you thinking. "What, me vacationing at a nude resort? It
sounds unusual." Not really. Europeans have been visiting naturist resorts and
nude and topless beaches for decades. In Europe, when the temperatures go up,
the clothes come off. A recent news story on Yahoo.com stated "Brits say bye
bye to the bikini for an all over tan."
There has never been a better time to take a clothing optional vacation in
America than now. Forbes Magazine reports that nude recreation is the fastest
growing niche in the travel industry. Palm Springs, California is one of the
most popular destinations as they have the best year round weather of all
cities in the U.S. You never need to worry about hurricanes while relaxing
poolside in sunny Palm Springs.
You may wonder, who goes to nudist resorts? Everyone! Democrats and
republicans, the tall and the short, thin and not thin, and the young and old
all have fun sunbathing au naturel. Baby boomers in particular have been
flocking to nudist resorts lately. They have always been an experimental
generation. It is only natural that boomers should seek out new travel
experiences and fun adventures.
"But I need to lose 10 or 20 or more pounds before I can come to your resort."
Tom and Mary Clare Mulhall, the owners of the popular Pure Nudist Clothing
Optional Resort and Kids and Family of Palm Springs CA
hear this comment all the time from "newbies."
The Terra Cotta is famous for being the most mainstream nude resort in
America. They are the best place for couples trying nude sunbathing for the
first time. They are a beautiful boutique resort that was originally built as
a celebrity hideaway. Repeat guests from around the world love staying there.
"The good thing about vacationing at a clothing optional resort," says Mary
Clare "is it really builds a woman's self esteem. She will see that all women
are 'normal.' So many women tell me that they hate wearing bathing suits
because they feel self conscious, but love going nude because now, for once in
their lives they truly feel free and don't have to worry how they look in a
suit. It is a great feeling knowing how happy women are vacationing with us."
So this summer, if you are looking to beat the heat, try something cool. Book
your vacation at a clothing optional resort. If you go, this will be the year
all your friends will want to hear about your new fun adventure.
