The Toyota Venza can handle long road trips and has the trunk space for large hauls, so take it for a spin yourself or with the whole family.

Let's Go Places: The king of snacks

It's baseball season, kids are returning to in-person learning, and the weather is improving. All these things mean that you need some quality bags of nuts and jars of nut butter around the house to enjoy a game or make a sandwich for a packed lunch.

CB's Nuts in Kingston is the place to go! You can order any of their products online, but the retail location inside an old North Kitsap fire station is a place to behold as well. They have an in-house baker in charge of creating cookies and macaroons for guests to enjoy. Visitors can also take pictures on the real bench that was once used by Seattle Mariners players in the dugout of the Kingdome!

Kingston probably sounds like a long distance away from Seattle. You can drive all the way around the South Sound, or you can hop on a ferry in Edmonds to get there. Either way, you're going to be putting some miles on your vehicle if you choose to visit CB's Nuts in person. Toyota has the perfect car for you to get there: the 2021 Toyota Venza.

The Venza is a hybrid that provides a class-leading EPA-estimated 39 combined mpg. Its sophisticated design will make you stand out on city roads. Meanwhile, going off the beaten path is no problem for the Venza because its Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive feature powers the rear wheels when the vehicle senses uncertain road conditions. 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 and comfortable with heated and ventilated front seats.

The available 12.3-inch touchscreen display on the center console connects your phone to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Dial up the Mariners game on the radio while you're logging those miles on the way to Kingston. You can also ask Amazon Alexa for information, like the weather or traffic. The available 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 illuminates the interior after the sun sets to 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 to maximize your haul at CB's Nuts or anywhere you decide to shop. Start the vehicle and lock and unlock the doors from a compatible smart device, thanks to available Remote Connect. 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. 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 $32,570 MSRP.
