At these places in Illinois, it's okay to be naked.

There are two types of people in this world. Those who are comfortable being naked and those that aren't. I am a not guy. Being nude, especially around other people isn't my thing.

I had friends in college, they had no problem with it. Right there in the middle of a party, they would take off their clothes.

When I was in middle school, my family took a vacation to Europe. I remember there were topless women at the pool. That was kind of awkward for a teenage boy.

My old roommate was an insurance adjuster. He told a story about how he had to do a claim at a nudist colony. I would say that would be strange.

Of course, being naked in public is not only frowned upon but also illegal.

There are some places where it's okay including in Illinois.

According to urbanmatter.com,

"You don’t have to travel too far to find some like-minded souls and a pleasant spot where you all can live free and get naked. Here are a few places where public nudity is technically legal near."

Chicago Fun Club

"The one truly Chicago-based nudist group, Chicago Fun Club, coordinates social gatherings and events for those enthusiastic about keeping things breezy."

Blue Lake Resort in Erie, Illinois

"Located in the Rock River Valley, the grounds are 30 miles from Quad Cities and cover about 20 acres of land."

Maybe, it's something to try out this summer.
