Hitting the Road in the 2015 Toyota Highlander Hybrid #ToyotaRoadTrip

Toyota Road Trip (11)

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of taking road trips. I have always loved traveling the open roads and discovering new places.  I enjoy being on the move and having the option to linger at will. When you are on a plane your scenery is limited and you miss just about everything along the way. Take a road trip and you never know what you’re going to see next. On the road you don’t have to imagine yourself in a particular landscape or city as if you were flying at 30k miles, all you have to do is pull over and get out.

Snack options are better too!

I also enjoy exploring off the beaten path. Although I don’t tear up and down the back roads and trails doing stunts like I used to, I still get excited when I see a dirt road and want to check it out.

Where the rubber meets the road (or dirt) you need a vehicle that can take you there.

For Spring Break 2015, we journeyed both on and off the blacktop in a 2015 Toyota Highlander Hybrid on our very own #ToyotaRoadTrip to Crystal River Florida compliments of Toyota. The vehicle offered great fuel economy with a combined city/hwy of 28 MPG.  It made the trip very affordable and we made it from Orlando to Crystal River and back on less than a tank of gas!

There was plenty of room for all of us and our luggage which made for an easy ride. The more comfortable everyone is the fewer stops we have to make and the less cranky people get. I can’t remember any bickering this trip… Weird.

Nobody had a problem keeping their phones charged up either. I really like this shelf built in to the dash. It’s like a bench seat for your devices!

There were plenty of places to put our stuff. The center console had ample space for my camera and lenses. Because my camera was easily accessible I was able to snap a few shots of an eagle we found scavenging along the roadside.

The panoramic sunroof kept my head in the clouds for miles. It’s nice to be able to kick back and let someone else drive.

Traveling to me is about fulfilling dreams. I have always dreamed of swimming with manatees and this #ToyotaRoadTrip to Crystal River is what got me there. Thanks Toyota!!!
