To quote Nelly’s 2002 hit song ‘Hot in Herre:’

Its gettin' hot in here (so hot)
So take off all your clothes

This jam must have been playing when the good people at MyDatingAdviser conducted a study they just put out. They set out to find the best places to go skinny dipping in the U.S.

The study compared over 800 swimming spots looking at categories like beach quality, safety, weather, and costs of nearby hotels.

There is nothing more liberating and joyful than a skinny dip. If you can visit a beautiful skinny dipping spot, it’s worth stripping down, enjoying nature, and having a splash! Remember, it’s not a big deal; even better if the water is cold!” said MDA’s Managing Editor, Amy Pritchett.


Ultimately, 13 skinny dipping spots in New Jersey were deemed the best places to go in the state. It's only legal to take off your clothes in one of these places – Gunnison Beach in Sandy Hook. For the rest of these places, it's illegal to skinny dip. In fact, according to the State Parks Services, people could be hit with a fine upwards of $1,500 for illegally skinny dipping.
