We all know at least one person who never seems to have any clothes on. We can't blame them, though - wearing less is just more comfortable, especially in this recent wave of hot weather.

For the most part, people stick to walking around half-naked in the privacy of their own homes. But there are several places in the city where one can bring that same comfort outdoors... And maybe even bring a date along.
You don't need to have a beach body to go on a date half-naked, you just need to have the confidence. Here are 12 places in Toronto to go on a date half-naked:

Marie Curtis Park (West Beach) // 2 Forty Second St
Marie Curtis Park is perhaps one of the lesser populated beaches in the Toronto area, so it's perfect for individuals looking to have a date in a not-so busy place. Although the beach is only a short stretch, there's plenty of space to lay down a blanket, sit in the sand and enjoy the cool breezes coming from the shore - all while in your swimsuits, of course.
The Thompson Hotel // 550 Wellington St W
The Thompson Hotel has a stunning rooftop infinity pool looking out to a breathtaking view of the Toronto skyline. The pool is surrounded with several patio chairs where you and your date can take everything in while sipping on a martini. The only catch is that the pool is only reserved for guests, so it may be a better option if you think your half-naked date will turn into a full-naked one, if you know what I mean...
Wild Waterworks // 680 Van Wagners Beach Rd
Wild Waterworks is a water park that features the largest outdoor wave pool in Southern Ontario, as well as six water slides, a lazy river and a wading pool. Although the park is in Hamilton, the short drive is worth it for those who would love to get into their bathing suits and relive their childhoods.
Hanlan's Point Beach // Lakeshore Ave
Hanlan's Point Beach is known for its clothing optional area; but for a half-naked date, visitors can head over to the other side of the beach where it's also less crowded. Hanlan's Point is also the only beach in the city that faces the West, so it's a great place to bring a date for watching the sun set. For an even more romantic time, you can also anticipate fireworks displays and airshows during certain holidays.
The Four Seasons // 60 Yorkville Ave
The Four Seasons has a pool on its third floor that is half-indoors and half-outdoors (the pool is separated by a glass panel). With a fee of $65, guests can enjoy drinks and towel service will laying out on a cozy lounge chair. The venue is a great option for individuals looking for an alternative to the classic beach date.
