Being off to somewhere

1. I'm off to work!
2. He's off to California.
3. They're off to the beach!
4. Alright, kids. Off to bed! It's past your bedtime.
5. They just got back from Alaska, and they're already off on another adventure

Being off to a place simply means going to the place
We use the preposition on when we want to mention an activity, as in number 5 above. For example, "They're off on a camping trip," or "They're off on a five-country tour of Europe," or "They're off to Europe on a five-country tour."
