Naturist Census, USA.
2004This report is old. Hope you enjoy it too. We wonder if things have changed substantially enough to make a big difference in these stats.
FIVE WILL BRING YOU TEN!
One can win many bets with these questions:
A. "Which state has the most proprietary Naturist spots based on population?"
B. "Which state has the most clubs based on land area?" One will never guess unless one is really savvy. The results are surprising.
California has the most--26--but then, California is the most populous and the third largest state. Florida is next with 19. Texas is third in nkkd (pronounced "neckd" very quickly and as only one syllable) parks with 8, but Texas is second in land area and third in population. So which state has the most clubs based on population and land area? California, Florida Texas? No way! Texas doesn't even qualify for either category; Texicans ought to love that! Give up?
A. Are you ready? You may have trouble believing this, but the answer is Vermont! Yes, Vermont is an easy winner of the most resorts based on population with one per each 0.25 million people.
B. Rhode Island is the correct answer, an easy winner with one resort per 1,054 square miles. Verily, all New England states place in at least one category; Rhode Island and Vermont place in two. It's no wonder New England is known as "The Cradle of American Civilization."
The top ten states:
Most Facilities Based On Population:
1. Vermont, the Green Mountain State, our favorite! 2--Forest City Lodge, Maple Glen.
