We will stop in Las Vegas, Nevada rather than Henderson on the first night. Our second overnight is Bryce Canyon City, Utah.
Once we start east on I-70 we have some other stops in the planning stages and are hoping to firm those up soon. On Day Four, we cross the Rockies. We’ll drive though picturesque Glenwood Canyon. We’ll pass Vail and other ski resorts and then, at over 11,000-feet, drive through the Eisen- hower-Johnson Tunnel. From there we’ll continue on I-70, down the slopes of the Colorado front range, through Denver and an overnight part way across Kansas to Colby, KS.. On the fifth day we head to Kansas City, Missouri and then on to Cape Girardeau MO on Day Six.
The evening in Cape G was a huge hit in 2014 and 2019. The city rolls out the Red Carpet for sev- eral Caravan Sections in this picturesque “Main Street USA” town on the west bank of the Missis- sippi River. The event, “Corvettes in Cape,” is put on by the Corvette Club of southeastern Missouri and the Cape Girardeau Visitor’s Bureau.
Main St. is a block west of the River and in the afternoon and evening a two-block section of it is closed to traffic and becomes a Corvette show-and-shine. The entire town celebrates America’s Sports car with live bands, food booths, beer gardens and other fun activities centered around the Corvette Caravan.
That will be our final night on the road. The National Corvette Caravan ends the next afternoon at National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.
In total, we’ll have six nights and seven days on the road. The National Corvette Museum 30th An- niversary Activities begin on Thursday, August 29th 2024 and continue through Saturday, August 31.
