This week, July 10-16, marks the 31st anniversary of Nude Recreation Week The purpose of the week is to inform and educate people about "all the fun they are missing out on by not taking nude vactions," according to
The American Association for Nude Recreation. (Yes, there is a national association for nudists.)

Nude vacationers now have choices such as cruises (on such lines as Holland America, Carnival, and Star Flyer sponsored by The Nude Cruise Company Bare Necessities of Austin, Texas), upscale resorts, and rural campgrounds and clubs.
