Australian City says no to nude beaches

A local city council in Australia obviously does not understand the positve financial impact of nude beaches, resorts, etc.

Mary Clare was born in Tampa, so we have spent a lot of time in Florida. We always say the reason we started our nudist resort in Palm Springs, CA was because we knew nudists want sunshine and Florida especially Tampa is one of the rainiest cities in the US. Tampa averages over 100 thuderstorms a year, more than any other city in the world.

We were at Haulover beach back in the 1970's and early 1980's before it became the most famous nude beach in America. We were also at South Beach which is topless. These places were very rundown. The major reason they have come back is the nude and topless beaches. Now South Beach is one of the most popular places in the world to go for your vacation. And property values have skyrocketed.

So here you have Miami, which gets more hurricanes than any other city in the world and averages over 60 inches of rain a year. They have the most successful nude and topless beaches in America even though they have some of the rainiest weather in America. That is the power of successful marketing and nude recreation.

We bought our resort, the Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort in Palm Springs 12 years ago. It was a textile hotel getting ready to go bankrupt. Within 4 years, we had the 2nd highest occupancy rate of ALL hotels in Palm Springs and have stayed 2nd highest for the last 8 years. Only the Indian Casino hotel is busier than us.

So I laugh when I hear that property values will fall if there was a nude beach. If done properly, they would have had a major tourism selling tool and could have attracted people from around the world to their town.

It is amazing how small minded some people can be.

Council says no to nudist beach
The Shire of Dandaragan has voted against having a nudist beach in Cervantes, between Perth and Geraldton.

Council had advertised for public comment on the proposal for a nudist beach to be established 500 metres south of the Barcelona Street car park.

Council received 12 written submissions and a petition with 61 signatures opposing a nudist beach.

Among the reasons for opposing the nudist beach were the likelihood of attracting undesirable people, it would lower property values and the area was often used by families and children.

At its April council meeting last week, the council voted not to proceed with the beach.

Palm Springs is NOT the sunniest city in the USA...Yuma, AR is...and Redding, CA (my hometown) is the second...don't lie to sell.

But you are WAY wrong!!!
Redding averages 38.6 inches of rain a year. Palm Springs, under 3 inches of rain.

This year so far, Yuma has had 1.88 inches of rain, Palm Springs, 0.07 inches!!!

Now technically Furnace Creek, CA is the sunniest and driest city in America. But, only 31 people live there!

I am a past president of the Palm Springs, CA chamber of commerce. What you are reading is surveys of cities over 100, 000 population. Palm Springs is under 50, 000. You are correct if you are only counting larger cities.

However, you are just so wrong if you are including ALL cities in America! That is why Palm Springs is the sunniest city in America!!!
