Pasco County Commissioners are considering whether to spend tourist tax dollars to promote the county as a destination for international nudists.
Commissioners on Tuesday will discuss whether to award a tourism development grant of almost $4,000 to PANDAbare, which stands for Pasco Area Nudist Development Association.
The Tampa Tribune reports that the group is launching a marketing campaign that targets nudists from Germany and England. The campaign will urge tourists to use Pasco County as a base while visiting museums, beaches, amusement parks and the Space Coast.
Pasco has about a dozen nudist communities and "naturism" — as the nudist lifestyle is called — recently celebrated its 70th anniversary in the county.
