8. Pool, Hot Tub, Showers, and Sauna 
Is this an outdoor nudist festival in Loxahatchee, or a weekend spa retreat at the Four Seasons? Apparently, a return to nature also comes with some pretty decent amenities. If the whole idea of being naked in nature (a.k.a. heat, humidity, mosquitos) for longer than five minutes without the assurance of a nearby shower was starting to make your skin crawl, fear not! At the Sunsport Gardens Family Nudist Resort, a pool, hot tub, showers, and sauna will be open until 2 a.m. nightly for free entries, and 24/7 for overnight guests. Let's go skinny dipping!


7. Live Music
What's a proper naturists gathering without the feel-good vibrations of live music? You may already be familiar with some of the mostly local and beloved jam bands scheduled to play for the weekend, but you've probably never seen them like this. 

Free Like Me, the Funky Nuggets, Ancient Sun, Psychedelic Zoo, Awful Monsters, the Boundless, and DJs Adammo and Zeb will provide the tunes. While they jam in the nude, you'll naked dance, and everyone will have a funky good time.

6. Be in Nature
Apart from the whole being naked thing, how often do we really get to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life in the "city" and truly appreciate the natural world around us? Loxahatchee (also home to Lion Country Safari!) is a lush, tropical paradise of beautiful rivers, groves, and wildlife, and it's one of the most rural areas near West Palm Beach. As you remove each layer of clothing, let your mind also leave behind all the tribulations of city living and take in all the sensations of South Florida's great outdoors.

5. Community Day
The folks at the Florida Young Naturists really want to make sure everyone has a chance to experience what they've dedicated the last five years trying to share with the world. That's why, apart from providing weekend-long tickets plus overnight grounds stay for only $15 for first-timers and $25 returning visitors, they've also included a Community Day, when anyone is welcome to join in the fun for free. 

On Friday, between 5 p.m. and 2 a.m., let it all hang out; take a ride down the Niagara 75-foot waterfall, get your body Naked DayGlo painted, cozy up around the drum circle bonfire, and enjoy the live tunage of the Funky Nuggets, all complimentary!
