A cheeky weekend away at central Florida’s naughtiest hideout: the clothing-optional hub of Paradise Lakes near Ocala. It’s the largest of its kind in the country, set on 70 lush acres in the liberal-minded Pasco County, which is also home to several other nudist resorts. Newbies and seasoned nudists are welcome. Dive in, if you dare.

Paradise Lakes

The property is the largest clothing-optional resort in America. Tour the 70-plus lushly landscaped acres, then work on getting a tan-line-free tan at the pool. There’s also poolside aerobics and tennis. A 30-day membership is only $125 if you’re a clothes-shunning convert.

Caliente Resort

Try the juicy burgers at Caliente Resort’s poolside restaurant.

Lake Como Resort

Order upscale American fare at Bare Buns Cafe inside the Lake Como resort.

Ritz Historic Inn

Take advantage of the fountain courtyard, cheerful floral rooms, mosaic swimming pool, and on-call masseuse.
