Lonely Planet review
Fans of Olympic sports will enjoy a free guided spin through one of three official United States Olympic training centers. This is, or has been, the chief training facility for most winter sports, and summer sports such as cycling, weight lifting and volleyball. It begins with an inspirational up-to-date highlight reel.
Afterward you'll stroll through the 37-acre campus, glimpse weight rooms and gyms, and hear legends of athletes past. The tour ends at the US Olympic Hall of Fame in the lobby. Recent inductees include the spectacular sprinter Michael Johnson, volleyballer Karch Kiraly and the great marksman Lones Wigger.
