Love to travel but limited by the ubiquitous “two weeks paid” vacation per year? 2 Weeks Paid is here to help make your 10 days off count. Our home base is L.A. so we focus a lot on California and the West Coast, but we’re equal opportunity travelers and love featuring destinations around the world!
