Southwest Clothing Optional and Nude Safety Zones

Going Naked on Your Southwest Vacation


You may not be a naturist but sometimes you just want to go somewhere where you can be nude for awhile. It's hot in the Southwest and there are places where you can be topless by the pool or nude in the resort's hot tub. This isn't a list for naturists, but it's a good start for someone who's clothing is getting the best of them.
