US Olympic Training Center information
Lonely Planet review
Fans of Olympic sports will enjoy a guided spin through one of three official United States Olympic and Paralympic training centers (the other two are in Lake Placid and Chula Vista). This is the chief training facility for various sports such as gymnastics, judo, swimming 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.
