Naked Travel Possibilities

Nude awakenings in US travel

Remember the guys in college who were all about skinny dipping? Turns out their hormones may have been hinting at a naked truth... Naked travel  its not just for hormone-driven teens and hippies anymore.

Naked TravelNaked TravelWhile there's a certain amount of revelry associated with getting down to your skivvies in public, the nude travel were talking is more about freedom of expression and spiritual awakenings. Its about shedding the protective outer shell (both literally and figuratively) and letting real you out into the world.

We've found 3 places here in the US where you can try naked travel on for size. If youre a first-timer, go with your girlfriends or your partner - not a group of couples. And remember, taking your clothes off is the hardest part - it gets simpler and more fun after that.

A world full of yes

Burning Man, Nevada started as an annual office party for Silicon Valley execs who needed a little razzle dazzle in their otherwise corporately sterile lives. But 50,000 people (last count) committed to self-expression - and not surprisingly partying - have transformed Burning Man into a celebration of an artistic connection.

The week-long celebration is pretty much rule-less (save rules that protect the health and safety of participants). State of dress and undress is entirely up to you. Bring a towel though - they make great hats. And if you get tired of all the naked partying, bring your credit cards cause youre closer to Vegas than you think.

Forbidden fun

The World Naked Bike Ride is Peta-like in its mission to expose the environmental dangers of vehicle emissions. This event isnt for lightweights though - the parade route is lined with fully-clothed gawkers. Body paint and mirrored sunglasses help.

We actually like the idea of parking the car and hopping on the bike naked. Can you think of a crazier - or more energy efficient - way to spend your day? We can't either. Just dont forget that towel (for that narrow bike seat) or you could be taking more than memories home with you.

Baywatch style vacationing

Black Beach in La Jolla San Diego may sound pedestrian next to the World Naked Bike Ride and Burning Man, but sometimes a girl just wants to lie on a beach and tan, right? We love the hippie-vibe of California, but Black Beach embodies the free and easy attitude so beautifully.

Its all here - beach blanket bingo, volleyball, spontaneous barbeques and oodles of that let-it-all-hang-out attitude. Granted, not everyone here is a carbon copy of Hasselhoff and Anderson, but who cares when you're in the middle of all this fun.

Bring plenty of sunscreen. This is California and a burn on the nether regions isn't fun.

  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "

  • On Travel Advice for Visiting a New Country, NJB said "Hi Stacy, great article! Just wanted to say, you can get an international SIM card that works in multiple countries and on cruise ships. They're not quite as cheap as a SIM card from the country you're visiting, but they're cheaper than a roaming plan on your domestic SIM and will save you a lot of time if you're visiting several countries. I got mine from Telestial, which also offers a range of cheap travel phones and other useful products (adapters, etc)."
