Weekend Babes is based in Los Angeles, CA, USA. We spend our weekends exploring locally and regionally (and occasionally beyond) in an effort to reclaim and reinforce our identities as humans and friends. We think that life away from work is so important, and we share our trips in the hopes of informing and inspiring our readers to also get away (literally or figuratively).

Weekend Babes was founded in 2012 as a way to document little trips—for the sake of imperfect memories, and for the potential pleasure of friends, family, and whoever else happened upon it. Over the course of many days/months/miles spent meandering, it's become much more. Our trips near and far bring us much excitement and joy without us having to sacrifice a ton of time or money. We are in love with life's more modest indulgences. Our goal as babes* of the weekend is to seek and find meaning and pleasure in the precious spaces of non-work, whether that means sleeping in, taking a walk around a new part of town, or crossing oceans with friends. Please join us if you'd like (we'd love to have you).  

*Babes, to us, is a gender neutral term.
