Let's Go Places: Curl like a champion

Is one of your resolutions in 2022 to learn a new skill? Curling may not be easy to master, but it is a fun way to spend an afternoon while aspiring to be like the athletes who'll be competing in the sport during the 2022 Winter Olympics in February.

The Granite Curling Club is located in Seattle's Northgate neighborhood and gives curlers of all skill levels the opportunity to get on the ice. Even if you've never tried curling in your life, you can schedule a lesson and play a game. As you improve, you might consider becoming a member so you can refine your skills and practice more often. You can also come and watch, or you can bring a whole group for an event that will surely be a unique bonding experience.

Have the ambition for curling but don't know how you're going to get there? Toyota has the vehicle that's perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, highway drivers, weekend errand runners, and everything in between. It's the 2022 Toyota Venza Limited!

The Venza Limited is a hybrid with class-leading, EPA-estimated 40 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, allowing you and your paychecks to go farther. You won't need to worry about where you're going because the Venza can adapt to all kinds of terrain with standard Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive, a feature that automatically powers the rear wheels whenever they need extra assistance. The Venza also comes with four drive modes: Sport, Eco, Normal, and EV, which can be toggled depending on what type of experience you want to have.

The Venza truly is the future of driving. Available Remote Connect allows you to start the engine, lock and unlock the doors, and find your vehicle in a busy parking lot, all from your compatible smart device. The available 12.3-inch touchscreen display conveniently connects you to apps and entertainment through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto™, and Amazon Alexa. All your audio pumps through the available nine JBL speakers positioned throughout the interior of the car.

In addition to the information display behind the steering wheel, there's an available 10-inch Head-Up Display that shows your speed, hybrid information, and safety alerts on the windshield. Your rear view is covered as well with an available digital mirror that displays a clearer and wider picture of what's behind you. You can even zoom in and out if you want because the technology uses a camera mounted in the back of the vehicle.

Everybody can relax in the Venza, which has room for up to five people and the flexibility to accommodate extra luggage and gear. Heated and ventilated seats are available for the two people in the front, while 60/40 split rear seating in the back gives you the room to seat passengers or store your stuff. An available hands-free power liftgate allows you to wave your foot under the bumper to open the trunk even when your hands are completely full. The available Star Gaze fixed panoramic roof is your window to the sky, and the glass can be adjusted from transparent to opaque with the push of a button.

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. The Venza has additional safety features available to show you potential obstacles. These include an available Bird's Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan, Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking, and a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

So, what are you waiting for? Round up some fellow curlers and hop in the 2022 Toyota Venza Limited, which starts at $40,380 MSRP.
