We wake up in the morning, get ready for work, drive into the office, and sit at a desk until it’s time to go home. It’s the routine. It’s the dance we do from 9 to 5, Monday to Friday. But when the clock strikes 5PM on a Friday evening, we know the next two days are ours to own. And what better way to get out of the city and experience life beyond the city walls, than to jump in a Ford Escape and partake in a weekend adventure. We took an Ultimate Weekend Escape from Vancouver to Tofino and back so check out the video and see if you can spot any familiar stops we made.

With available features like Active Park Assist, ample cargo space, SYNC with MyFord Touch, and the foot-activated hands-free power liftgate, the Ford Escape is the perfect enabler for the ultimate weekend getaway.

Looking for ideas on how to have an ultimate weekend away from Vancouver? Why don’t you head over to Tofino and experience the natural beauty and wondrous adventure of the west coast? And seeing as it’s just a ferry ride away, you can leave downtown Vancouver at 5, have an incredible weekend, and be back at home Sunday night.

The Ultimate Weekend Escape From Vancouver

We left downtown Vancouver, took a Ford Escape and boarded the ferry at Horse Shoe Bay. From there we hit up Romper Room Indoor Rock Climbing in Nanaimo where we strapped on our safety gear and scaled the walls. Then we got back on highway #1, caught a beautiful sunset on the side of the road, and managed to check into the Dolphin Motel before dark. The next morning we used Active Park Assist to get the perfect spot, jumped on a boat and let the gracious folks at the Tofino Whale Centre take us on an incredible water adventure. After spotting whales, sea lions, and otters, we headed back to dry land, caught another sunset and then back to the hotel. On Sunday we started making our way back to the ferry terminal, but not before stopping to check out the view at Radar Hill and seeing some natural wildlife at Butterfly World just off the Island Highway. We caught an early evening ferry, and were back in Vancouver just as the sun went down.The Ultimate Weekend Escape From Vancouver
