|About these ratings|
Occupying a whopping 37 acres of central Colorado Springs, the United States Olympic Training Center is the active headquarters of the U.S. Olympic Committee, as well as the center of U.S. Olympic athletic training. Stop by the Visitors Center to find detailed information about the complex. From there, make your way to the massive Hall of Fame, which honors some of the most spectacular athletes in U.S. Olympic History.
You're welcome to visit the Hall of Fame on your own, but many recent visitors recommend tagging along on a free, guided tour. One traveler praises his guide -- an aspiring athlete -- on TripAdvisor: "He gave us his own personal take on what it is like to try and be the best in the world and dedicate 6-8 years of your life on one singular goal, to make an Olympic team."
The Visitors Center and the Hall of Fame are open every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tours are conducted every half hour between 9 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (and till 4:30 in June and July). For more information, check the center's website.
