Let's Go Places: Neighborhood holiday light destination

One thing that doesn't have to go away in 2020 is driving through neighborhoods to look at all the holiday light displays. It's socially distanced, and it will bring joy to you and your family's hearts.

You probably already have some favorite homes or neighborhoods you look forward to seeing, but if you're looking for a new experience, head out to Keener's Christmas in Bothell. Every year, Jeff and Candice Keener decorate their home and welcome people to see the masterpiece they've created. There's no entry fee; it's just a couple who wants to spread holiday cheer to everyone they can. They do accept cash donations that go to Seattle Children's Hospital and canned food donations that go to HopeLink of Kirkland.

Now the question becomes, "How will you get to this light show and any others you decide to visit?" Toyota makes that answer easy.

The 2021 Toyota Venza boasts an all-hybrid powertrain that delivers 219 horsepower and class-leading fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 39 combined mpg. You'll be able to visit your favorite neighborhoods just as easily as Santa does in his sleigh.

Experiment with four different drive modes (EV, Eco, Sport and Normal) that change how the Venza performs. The available Multi-Information Display and available Head-Up Display behind the steering wheel show you all the performance information you need to know.

Blast holiday carols on the nine-speaker JBL sound system, perfectly tuned for every jingle. Control the music, navigation, calls and more on the massive 12.3-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa capabilities.

For the first time ever, an available Star Gazeā„¢ fixed panoramic glass roof with UV protection allows you to experience starry nights, clear skies, or even Santa's reindeer flying overhead. Four USB ports keep your phone charged at all times so you can take pictures of every beautiful sight you see.

The Venza has room for up to five people, and everyone will feel their coziest with luxurious soft-touch materials throughout the cabin. The Venza's available heated and ventilated front seats and available heated leather-trimmed steering wheel provide additional comfort. The backseats also fold down in a 60/40 split for flexible storage space.

Work smarter and not harder this holiday season with intuitive features like the available Remote Connect. This allows you to use your smart device to start the Venza, lock and unlock it, and find it if you forget where you parked. You'll never have to get into a cold car or hunt for it in frigid temperatures again. When your arms are full of gifts, winter gear, or anything else, use the hands-free power lift gate to open the trunk and place everything inside.

Safety comes standard on every new Toyota Venza. The Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 package includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Road Sign Assist to help protect you and your passengers.

An available digital rearview mirror uses a camera in the back of the Venza to show you an unobstructed view of what's behind you. The mirror zooms in and out, reduces glare from surrounding lights, and brightens darker areas. If you run into some slick roadways, the Electronic Automatic All-Wheel Drive system intuitively sends power to the rear wheels to help improve traction.

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