What do nudists do in winter? Plan for warm weather Florida!

Friday, December 08, 2006

There are two clear facts about the weather in North America. First, December is cold just about everywhere. Second, the south warms up quicker than the north.

If you are a Canadian or from northern United States, there’s no better time than now to start thinking about warm weather nude recreation. This is the only way to get through the dreary winter!

Since outdoor nude recreation is best when the weather is warm and since Florida gets warmest first, with April likely to have some nice weather days, let’s look at the nudist resorts travel choices in Florida.

Cypress Cove is in Kissimmee and not far from Disney or the Orlando airport. There are hotel rooms available and plenty of activities including swimming pool, whirlpool, tennis, volleyball, recreation hall, a 50-acre freshwater lake, and 300 acres of wilderness. They also have regular exercise classes, dances and other activities. There’s no Mickey Mouse, but then again, Mickey Mouse was not a nudist...or was he?

Paradise Lakes is a nudist resort in Land O’Lakes north of Tampa and has lots of water activities on a big site. There are 2 water volleyball areas, 3 pools, 2 hot tubs, a lake and a 72 foot jet pool/whirlpool. There are also saunas, a piano bar, a nightclub, a restaurant, tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, a gym, and assorted recreational activities. And if your hair is shaggy, they also have a salon.

Lake Como Resort is in Lutz, Florida, also just north of Tampa. The family nudist resort has a lake, a pool and a huge hot tub. There is a bar/restaurant, dance hall, tennis, volleyball, petanque and other activities. They even have a golf driving range.

Caliente Resort is among the fancier nudist resort settings in Florida. There are 2 water volleyball pools and 2 sand volleyball courts and regular tournaments. There are a lot of things to do to keep busy including is a swimming pool, hot tub, spa, a fitness center, fitness classes, restaurant, cantina, clubhouse, tennis courts, lakes, beach area, and a hotel.

Hidden River in Hudson is a charming naturist resort on 88 acres. It offers a pool, hot tub, camping, volleyball, canoeing, bicycling, petanque and trail riding.

Edun Lake in Naples, Florida is another charming get-away-from-it-all 20-acre club. It has a pool, lake, camping, a bar, and a pavilion for activities.

Sunnier Palms near Fort Pierce, Florida has a 12-acre nature preserve, camping, pool, hot tub, volleyball, and petanque. The campground, according to their website, offers visitors “peaceful, country naturism”.

My name is Tom Mulhall. My wife and I own The Terra Cotta Inn located in sunny Palm Springs, CA.

You do a great job letting everyone know all about the fun of vacationing at nudist resorts.

For winter time vacations (or anytime for that matter), don't forget about Palm Springs, CA. Palm Springs is a desert and averages less than 3 inches of rain a year. There is no sunnier, warmer location for nude sunbathing in the world than Palm Springs.

Since you mentioned Canadians vacationing in the US, 2 weeks ago The Calgary Herald newspaper picked the Terra Cotta Inn as one of the "top places to let it all hang out."

We are blessed with three nudist resorts in Palm Springs. Each is unique. They are:

The Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa With repeat guests from around the world, we are a very popular resort. We are perfect for couples trying nude sunbathing for the first time. They are a nice nudist bed and breakfast. They sell condos to nudists.

Tom, sounds like lots of great destinations in Palm Springs, CA. I'll be covering Southern California soon as there are a lot of destination options. Tera Cotta Inn seems like a nice relaxing place and it certainly has a great reputation.

WEB, in regards to Caliente, sorry I missed all of the details. Caliente has so much to do it is hard to write it all down! :)
