It seems fitting that the Sunshine State would be a magnet for sun worshipers from around the world. Florida is much more than just a place for naturists to gather, says Ramon Maury, naturist industry representative and voice in Tallahassee.

Keep your clothes on. In many places, public nudity is a serious crime that could lead to a fine or worse. Naturist resorts cater to completely clothing-free vacation seekers, so if you want to go all in or off , consider these options rather than a one-time visit to a nude beach. Rules at each of these resorts differ, and many are adults-only. Obviously, you will be required to look at your fellow sunbathers at some point, whether greeting them or fetching their Frisbee from your beach towel. Contrary to popular belief, most nude beaches are not sexy places ripped straight out of the pages of a Playboy Mansion memoir. Patrons come in all sizes, shapes, and states of physical fitness, and are far more likely to veer into dad bod territory than looking like Channing Tatum in the buff. Always ask explicitly if you may take a photo and make sure photography is even allowed where you are.
