With summer in full swing, it's natural to want to shed your layers, especially when temperatures hover near Go Topless , an international topless advocacy group, says Texas is one of 36 states where "top freedom is in effect," or where no laws directly prohibit public toplessness. Austin is the only city in Texas to pass the "topless test," according to gotopless. In San Antonio women who go topless in public can be arrested under one of three penal codes, public lewdness , indecent exposure or disorderly conduct if it appears the public could be offended by the display, a representative from the San Antonio Police Department said. None of the codes specifically mention going shirtless, only public intercourse or the displaying of genitalia is mentioned. McFaddin beach in Galveston is an "unofficial nude beach," where going topless is allowed, since it's secluded and the local police will only enforce conduct laws if a complaint is made.

Be advised though, that's also where a lot of people nude sunbathe mostly gay men , but that's illegal and you may get fined for it if caught.
