Warning: While you will not find any nude photos here on the New England Travel site, once you follow a link from this guide to one of the featured nudist resorts, I cannot guarantee that you will not see pictures of naked people. If nudity offends you, please proceed with caution.

6. Abbott's Glen 4 Seasons Resort
3542 VT Route 112, Jacksonville, VT, 802-368-2525

This southern Vermont inn and campground is one of the few New England properties that offers year-round nude getaways. A restored barn clubhouse with a woodstove, hot tub and restaurant is the place to be in the winter if you ask me (although nude ice skating, sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are options). Come summer, enjoy the scenic, 50-acre property's pond, river, waterfall and orchard. Day rates are available to guests who want to stop by for a nude fall hike or winter snowshoe, followed by a relaxing hot tub soak. And to remember your nude vacation? Have your nude portrait painted.

7. Sandy Terraces Associates Family Nudist Campground
570 Wakeby Road, Marstons Mills, Massachusetts, 508-428-9209

Want to experience Cape Cod sans clothing? This secluded, 10-acre campground is located near the Cape Cod National Seashore. Tent or RV sites can be reserved, and day rates are also available. Facilities feature a pondside beach, heated swimming pool, WiFi Internet access and tennis courts.

8. Solair Family Nudist Resort
65 Ide Perrin Road, Woodstock, Connecticut, 860-928-9174

Solair in Connecticut's "Quiet Corner" is one of the oldest continually operating nudist/naturist facilities in the United States. Established in 1935, the 450-acre property offers a variety of rustic accommodations options. Pets are welcome, but they can't go nude--they must wear collars and leashes at all times. You'll find a busy schedule of organized recreational activities (including nude Zumba) for adults and children, plus tennis courts, shuffleboard, volleyball, a beach, a pool and naked shopping in the camp store. Introductory rates are available for those who want to give nude vacationing a try.

9. Sun Ridge Nudist Resort
131 Calvin French Road, Sterling, Connecticut, 860-779-1512

Open May 1 through the fourth Sunday in September, Sun Ridge Resort offers campsites and rentals that are available by the night, week or month. Pets are welcome (proof of current rabies vaccine is required). Recreational amenities include a 60-foot swimming pool, a heated conversation pool, a sand volleyball court, tennis courts, billiard tables, a library and more. Located in southeastern Connecticut near both the Rhode Island and Massachusetts borders, this nude recreation destination provides proximity to many regional attractions including the Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun Casinos, where you can't go nude, although you can lose your shirt.

10. Juniper Woods
1226 Schoharie Turnpike, Catskill, New York, 518-945-1399

Located less than an hour from the Massachusetts state line in neighboring New York State, Juniper Woods is a 65-acre, family-oriented nudist camping retreat in the scenic Catskill Mountains. Want a vacation that's car-optional as well as clothing-optional? They'll pick you up at the Hudson train station.
