Favourite event of 2008

Well for another year your favourite event is the indulgent and delectable Clayoquot Oyster Festival. After that the Food and Wine Festival and Lantern Festival were local favourites.

Favourite activity done while skipping work

We are most definitely an outdoor community when it comes to time spent skipping work. Most of us seem to head out surfing or chill at the beach

Favourite spot to watch the sunset

Head'n out to Chestermans is the thing to do for sunset watchers. Or a leisurely walk down to the first street dock.

Favourite escape

Head'n out on the water, either on the ocean blue or Kennedy lake is your escape of choice. Otherwise we tend to head out of town for some big city excitement.

Favourite place to be at 4:20

As far as where you like to smoke one you either head to the beach or get somewhere comfy like the couch or bed.

Favourite spot for people watching

Our favourite places to sit back and watch the people show go by is at First & Campbell, the Common Loaf and Chesterman Beach.

Favourite sporting activity

The ocean is most definitely the center of our lives here with surfing and fishing as our two favourites.

Favourite place to relax

When it comes to unwinding we either head to the beach or shut the door at home for a little down time.

Favourite spa experience

The Ancient Cedar Spa at the Wickaninnish Inn was your favorite place for some spa goodness with Sacred Stone as your close second choice.

Favourite place to get in the water

When it came time for a dip you tended to head to MacKenzie beach or Kennedy Lake.

Favourite place for coffee

For those of who wake up in the morning with one thing on our mind coffee our favourite spots to head for were the Tofitian and the Common Loaf Bake Shop.

Favourite place for breakfast

The locals' choice in the morning for a bite to eat is the Schooner with Tuff Beans as its runner up.

Favourite place for lunch

Ohhhhhh Tofino... once again you spoke so very loudly when it comes to where to head for lunch, Sobo, Sobo, Sobo was your favourite with the Wildside Grill as our second choice.

Favourite place for dinner

Evening comes, we get hungry and for most of us the first thing we think of is sushi... Tough City Sushi was your first choice for dinner with Sobo as your next choice.

Favourite place for dessert

To satisfy our sweet tooth Tofino heads to Sweet T's for a little some'n some'n or over to Sobo.

Favourite place for a drink

Parched and look'n to sit down for a cocktail? Well Tofino's two favourites are Shelter Restaurant and the Wickaninnish Inn's lounge.

For a fine selection of wines Tofino's first choice was The Pointe Restaurant at the Wickaninnish Inn and Shelter Restaurant.

Favourite place for food on the go

For a quick snack on the run, The Wildside Grill was the top choice with Sobo coming in a close second.

Favourite accommodation

When asked where to stay in Tofino our top recommendation is the Pacifc Sands with Crystal Cove and Tofino Motel as second choices.

Favourite charter company

For heading out for a boat tour or suggesting it to others your first choice is Jamies Whaling Station with Remote Passages and Ocean Outfitters as your second choice.

Favourite surf company

To keep the surf vibe alive we turn to Storm as our number 1 source and Surf Sister as a second choice.

Favourite gallery

For a little art therapy many of us head over to the gorgeous Eagle Aerie Gallery and then The Reflecting Spirit Gallery for a little more.

For a little shopping and retail therapy our first choice was the Upstairs Boutique and Plush was the next favourite.
