Vacations are all about slipping into a mindset of complete relaxation, right? To let the normal stresses of everyday life disappear and be replaced with sunsets by the pool and a drink in-hand. While the topic may make some cringe, nudists from around the world proudly declare their clothing-free vacation preferences as the ultimate escape. Many first time nudists find that after the initial stress of disrobing, that it becomes natural and actually enjoy the experience as it becomes rather care-free. Really, this makes sense — most nudist resorts are not sexually-driven. Residents are made up of supportive, like-minded people, and no-one even has pockets to keep their phone in, further removing the chance of “the real world” leaking into the trip. This is not to say that an au naturel retreat is for everyone, but many find themselves at least a little curious. If that’s the case for you, read on as the travel experts at AllTheRooms have arranged a list of some of the best nudist resorts in North America.
