For a taste of Olympic glory without having to go through years of grueling training yourself, take the family to visit the Olympic Training Center. Check out where the athletes train for sports like bobsledding, figure skating, ice hockey, luge, skiing, and speed skating. The place is huge (the athlete center contains a 20,000 square foot gymnasium with the capability to hold three events at the same time), and includes high-tech medical facilities, 96 spacious rooms for athletes, and of course, a store where you can buy all the Olympic memorabilia you could ever want.
