I learned a valuable lesson the first time I went skinny dipping. After a few cocktails at our Mexican resort, we ran down the beach without a care in the world and flung our clothes off right where the sand meets the ocean. It was a very nice relaxing moonlit swim, but when we came out of the water I quickly discovered that my clothes had been swept out to sea. Oops!

If you're going to do it, learn from my mistake and make sure to place your clothes in a safe spot - far away from the water. You should also know that skinny dipping is illegal in most of Minnesota, but there are a couple of spots where you can strip down and dive in.

The dating website explains, "With its crystal-clear waters, Lake Superior is ideal for skinny dipping. The lake is surrounded by majestic forests, and visitors can explore the nearby Apostle Islands National Lakeshore or take a dip in the lake’s cool waters. There are plenty of nearby activities, like hiking trails, fishing spots, and beaches, to enjoy before heading out for a refreshing midnight swim."

I have swam in Lake Superior several times. The water is always very cold! No, thank you. I'm also pretty sure it's illegal to skinny dip there.
