So Long Cold, Cruel Winter, Say Hello to a Fun Vacation at a Sunny Clothing Optional Resort

Many people are under the wrong impression that nudist resorts are only for "card carrying" nudists and naturists. That couldn't be further from the truth. By not trying a vacation at a sunny nude hotel, they are missing out on all the fun. Leave your clothes behind this winter vacation and have fun at a carefree, clothes free, relaxing, romantic clothing optional resort.

Palm Springs, CA, December 14, 2006 --( You're cold, miserable, and wet. You've just finished shoveling the driveway. Time to relax in front of a roaring fire, drink a hot cup of cocoa, and start dreaming about your winter vacation.

In the past, you've suffered through winter vacations in Florida. Long lines, hordes of people, rainy weather, and crabby kids. This year it is time to do something different. Time to leave the kids with the grandparents and have a nice romantic getaway for just the two of you.

Remember the fun vacations you used to be able to take before the kids. You could sleep in late, relax by the pool all day long while sipping cool refreshing beverages. Late night dinners, walks, entertainment, casino visits, etc. Sound heavenly? Well it is, and it is easier to rekindle that romantic spark in your relationship than you think.

Why not book your vacation at a clothing optional hotel this winter? The best nudist resorts are no longer like the nudist colonies of olden days. They rival the best boutique hotels around. 

Now, not all nudist resorts are the same, so you will want to book at the one that is right for you.

One of the most popular nude vacation destinations is sunny Palm Springs, CA. With the best weather in the U.S., they average 350 days of sunshine a year. It is only logical that the favorite nudist resort in America is located in Palm Springs. It is The Terra Cotta Inn Clothing Optional Resort and Spa. Visit their site at

Designed by the famous architect Albert Frey, The Terra Cotta Inn is a beautiful, historic mid-century modern hotel. Originally built as a celebrity hideaway, with its high walls and privacy, it is ideal for topless and nude sunbathing.

The reason The Terra Cotta Inn is the most popular nudist resort in America is because they cater to regular people. No noisy kids here like at all the other nude places. It is very appealing with just couples as you can relax all day long, become friends with other adults and not have to listen to the constant cries from kids yelling out "Marco," "Polo."

"Most nudist resorts require memberships," says Tom Mulhall, past president of the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce and owner with his wife Mary Clare of The Terra Cotta Inn. "Most nude places want you to become annual members and come out on the weekends when the kids are out of school. To me that's not very relaxing or romantic. No kids and no membership fees here.

"We cater to first time couples who then become our repeat guests," says Tom. "Our guests want relaxing vacations. They come here from around the world, although predominently from the US, Canada, England, and Australia. They have so much fun at our nudist resort, that we average just over a 75% repeat guest rate, which is one of the highest rates in the travel industry."

"First timers are always nervous," says Mary Clare. "But, because we are a clothing optional resort, we let the couples ease into topless or nude sunbathing at their own comfort level and in their own time. And once they nude sunbathe, it is so romantic and fun, they love it. I would say over 99% of our guests end up nude sunbathing during their first visit to our hotel."

And the press loves the Terra Cotta Inn, too. Just last week, The Calgary Herald newspaper in Canada named The Terra Cotta Inn one of the "Top Places to let it All Hang Out." They were the only resort on the west coast that was honored.  Also The Chicago Tribune has reported that the Terra Cotta Inn is one of the 10 best clothing optional resorts of the world. In their 12 years of operation, The Terra Cotta Inn has been featured on TV, in magazines, and in newspapers from around the world.

So this winter, when you are fighting the snow and ice, start dreaming of all the fun you will be having in sunny Palm Springs, CA at the Terra Cotta Inn. Give them a call at 800-786-6938 and make those vacation dreams come true. You will be glad that you did!
