America's Top Free Attractions: Olympic Training Center

Tom Kimmell

Olympic Training Center, Colorado Springs, CO

Before they take the Olympic spotlight, athletes put in long hours here to prepare for the world’s largest athletic competition. The Colorado Springs center is one of three in the U.S. and focuses on summer indoor sports like swimming and fencing. You can tour the facility for free, and depending on your timing, your guide may even be an athlete. Linda Kramer of the blog Travels with Children says, “Our kids loved sitting in a bobsled, seeing how long the longest jump really was, and pretending to get their own gold medals.”
