So me and my two friends are cadets at the US Military Academy, at West Point, NY. This summer, as part of our yearly military training, we'll be training with the 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson, outside of Colorado Springs, CO. While most cadets are flying from NY to Fort Carson and other forts across the country, we want to Road-Trip it. Unfortunately, we only have 4 days to do it, so we'll really be "sprinting to Colorado." Right now we're planning on driving 7-9 hours a day and spending a night in a different city before arriving at Ft. Carson.
Our tentative itinerary
Day 1: West Point to Cleveland
Day 2: Cleveland to Indianapolis
Day 3: Indianapolis to Kansas City
Day 4: Kansas City to Colorado Springs.
I know this sounds like a blistering pace, but we're all young and eager to hit the road and see the country. I'm just hoping for some feedback on sites to see along the way or any general advice for what to see with half a day in each city. Thanks!
