Top 5 Clothing Optional Attractions in Arizona

Arizona can get hot. Really hot.

There are plenty of ways to beat the heat across the state, but no matter what, you'll always have a thin layer of material over your body, increasing the heat factor.

Located in the heart of the Grand Canyon State, Sunburst Inn is considered the state's premier naturist bed and breakfast. This inn is slightly smaller and all rooms are themed, giving this getaway a more intimate feel.

Tanque Verde waterfalls

Rounding out the list is the beautiful Tanque Verde Falls, a clothing-optional waterfall and swimming hole outside of Tucson. While the hike to the falls is a steep climb, the cliffs and wildlife you will see on the way to the falls are unique and don't forget how good the spring water feels on your bare skin.

All of these experiences are worth trying if you're interested in the nudist lifestyle, but remember to still wear clothes in public.
