Let's Go Places: Hunting for truffles

You might already be planning an Easter egg hunt for your family, but there's another type of hunt you can do that includes your dog. Truffle hunting season runs until May in Washington state, which means you still have plenty of time to learn this new skill from Truffle Dog Company.

Truffles are edible fungi that grow underground. They emit attractive scents to animals, who help the truffles reproduce by eating them and scattering their spores. The truffle scent is also what makes hunting possible! Truffle Dog Company offers virtual and private lessons to learn the art of truffle hunting.

To get to your private lesson (and future hunting sites), you'll need a vehicle capable enough for all kinds of terrain, efficient enough for long drives, and spacious enough to accommodate passengers and your dog. Look no further than the 2021 Toyota Venza.

The Venza is a hybrid that provides an EPA-estimated 39 combined mpg. The sophisticated design will make you stand out on city roads, while the Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive feature powers the rear wheels when the Venza senses uncertain conditions so you can feel comfortable if you go off the beaten path. Available projector LED headlights and taillights illuminate the way in darkness or rainy weather. Always feel in control with the eight-way adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support.

The available 12.3-inch touchscreen display on the center console connects your phone to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can also ask Amazon Alexa for information, like the weather. The 10-inch Head-Up Display projects your speed, hybrid system performance, and safety alerts directly behind the steering wheel. Never lose sight of your surroundings with the available digital rearview mirror, which uses a rear camera to show you a wider picture than you would see in a normal mirror. Look up at the sky through the Star Gaze fixed panoramic roof, perfect for sunny days or starry nights. Crisp, blue ambient lighting appears inside the car after the sun sets to illuminate the interior and give your drive a whole new feeling.

Every ride is a relaxing one with available heated and ventilated front seats. Manipulate the rear seats with the 60/40 folding option, which allows you to split the rear seats and fold them downward based on who or what you're trying to fit in the Venza. Start the vehicle and lock and unlock the doors from a compatible smart device, thanks to available Remote Connect. No matter where you go, you can stay connected with the Wi-Fi Connect feature that turns the Venza into a roaming hotspot and charge your devices with four USB ports.

Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 comes standard on every Toyota Venza. This active safety package includes features like the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, Lane Tracing Assist, and Road Sign Assist. Venza's available Bird's Eye View Camera and Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking offer additional peace of mind when maneuvering parking scenarios.

So, what are you waiting for? Your next adventure awaits in the 2021 Toyota Venza, which starts at $32,470 MSRP.
