Families & Naturism

The Naturist movement has always been family-centric. It is not uncommon to find several generations of families who have lived in this lifestyle.

Quote of the Month

“Nakedness means freedom, and although dancing on a sun-kissed hillside with shorts on seems pretty similar to dancing with shorts off, there is all the difference in the world. It is as if your clothes take on the weight of your worries and concerns – they come to embody your defenses against the world, and if you can feel confident enough and safe enough, then taking them off evokes a powerful sense of liberation, of joy and freedom; and more than that – of innocence and of openness to the world.”

AANR West Club Highlights

Las Vegas Bares

We just want to be naked and have fun in the sun. The Las Vegas Bares sponsors Nude and clothing-optional day and overnight trips to hot springs or landed nudist resorts. We have scheduled clothing-optional hikes and nude kayak day trips. Full MOON nude hikes, Nude overnight kayak excursions on the Colorado River, and visits to neighboring nude resorts in CA and AZ.   Sometimes we also have nude pool parties with NUDE Water Volleyball, and a sundeck to get your all-around tan! Come out and enjoy an afternoon of relaxing naked in the sun or recharge your mind and body with a free hike in the desert.

Mira Vista Resort

Welcome to Mira Vista – America’s “newest” and “oldest” clothing-optional resort. Mira Vista opened in May of 2006 under a new name and a new policy of wholesome nude recreation on an old property with a history dating back to the 1850s.

The resort is a step back in time, starting with the main building hacienda, home to the lobby, office, dining room, gift shop, library, and Old West saloon. Fourteen guest suites in original adobe-style buildings are accented with local rock and mortar walls. The 30-acre grounds are filled with mature trees, saguaro cacti, and many other native desert plants. Desert animals and birds are plentiful and sightings are common in this largely rural area.

It’s hard to believe that this great escape from the city is just 3 miles from Interstate 10. Words and pictures can’t convey all of the special charm and character of this unique resort. Being able to enjoy it all clothes-free just adds to the level of relaxation. Mira Vista is open to day visits. ****

Olive Dell Ranch

Olive Dell Ranch is Southern California’s favorite nudist resort for families and couples. Located in Colton, California Just a few miles from San Bernardino and Riverside. Olive Dell’s central location is close to many of Southern California’s main tourist attractions. It’s the ideal spot to enjoy the nudist/naturist lifestyle whether visiting for the day or an overnight stay.

Our nudist club offers: Rental cabins, Hookups, and Campsites for extended stays

Numerous amenities such as Tennis court, Hiking, Swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and Sauna

Short Story

A Breath of Fresh Air

Aiden, a businessman who was always busy and stressed out, decided to take a break from his routine and enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. He went to a peaceful forest clearing to meditate and clear his mind. While he was setting up his mat, he noticed a woman named Ava practicing yoga in the nude. Aiden was intrigued by the idea and decided to join her. They spent the day practicing yoga together and connecting with nature.

As they moved through the poses, Aiden felt a sense of freedom and liberation that he had never experienced before. The feeling of the cool breeze on his skin and the warmth of the sun on his face made him feel alive and invigorated. He felt a deep connection to the earth and all of its natural beauty.

As the day went on, Aiden and Ava talked about the benefits of naturism and how it can help people connect with nature on a deeper level. Aiden realized that he had been missing out on the rejuvenating benefits of nature and vowed to incorporate more outdoor activities into his life.

From that day on, Aiden made it a point to spend time in nature every week, whether it was hiking, camping, or practicing yoga outdoors. He found that being in nature helped him stay grounded, reduce stress, and improve his overall well-being. He was grateful for the chance to encounter Ava and the new perspective on life that she had given him.

The Many Names We Take Pride In

Our organization has undergone significant changes over the past few decades, with a focus on providing more detailed and comprehensive descriptions of the locations where we practice and enjoy our nudist lifestyle. While terms such as "nudist colony" or "nudist camp" may have been accurate in the past, we now prefer the use of terms such as "nudist clubs," "parks," or "resorts," which better reflect the diverse and welcoming nature of our community. Additionally, we have adopted new terminology to describe ourselves, including naturists, nudists, or members of clothing-optional organizations, highlighting the positive and respectful aspects of our lifestyle.

We believe that our lifestyle is grounded in basic human rights, such as the freedom to express oneself and the freedom to be comfortable in one's own skin. Our organization is committed to ensuring that these rights are protected and respected, and we work tirelessly to promote acceptance and understanding of our way of life. In addition to advocating for top freedom, social nudism, and family nudity, we also support a range of initiatives aimed at promoting body positivity and inclusivity, including educational programs, community events, and outreach activities. By working together, we can build a more open and accepting society that values diversity and celebrates the beauty of the human form.
