Let's Go Places: Hang out with a bird's eye view

There are few experiences more exhilarating than flying. We're not talking about flying in an airplane (although that can be exciting for some). We're talking about flying high above the lakes and trees of the Pacific Northwest, with legs swinging, arms free to your sides, and crisp air hitting your face.

Parasailing is more thrilling than standing in a hot air balloon, but it's not as terrifying as freefalling from thousands of feet in the air like you would if you were skydiving. Pacific Parasail offers a variety of packages, including single, tandem, or triple groupings at 600 feet or 1,000 feet in the air. If you can stomach the heights, you'll be rewarded with gorgeous, uninhibited views of Puget Sound, plus you'll get a scenic boat tour as a part of the experience.

It certainly would be nice to fly everywhere, especially with the traffic that has returned to the Seattle-area roads. That's not an option, so you might as well make the drive as comfortable and easy as possible. Hop in the 2021 Toyota Venza for your next adventure, and you'll wonder why you didn't travel this way sooner!

The Venza is a hybrid that provides a class-leading EPA-estimated 39 combined mpg. Its sophisticated design will turn heads on highways, while the available Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive feature sends power to the rear wheels to keep the Venza rolling on rougher terrain. Available projector LED headlights and taillights illuminate the way in darkness or rainy weather.

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 down to maximize legroom or storage room, whichever you need most. When piling equipment or shopping bags into the trunk, you'll find the available hands-free power liftgate helpful because you can simply wave your foot under the rear bumper to open the door.

The available 12.3-inch touchscreen display on the center console connects your phone to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™. Load up your playlist and play it out of the available JBL speaker system. You can also ask Amazon Alexa for information like the weather. The available 10-inch Head-Up Display projects your speed, hybrid system performance, and safety alerts directly behind the steering wheel so you don't have to avert your eyes from the road. 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 available 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 futuristic vibe.

Your journey begins and ends with available Remote Connect, which allows you to start the vehicle and lock and unlock the doors from a compatible smart device. No matter how far you travel from home, you can stay connected with the Wi-Fi Connect feature that turns the Venza into a roaming hotspot, plus you can 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. 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. The only thing you need to worry about is getting to your destination.

So, what are you waiting for? Your next adventure awaits in the 2021 Toyota Venza, which starts at $32,670 MSRP.
