Interesting place to visit. Grab a free map and take the self-guided audio tour using your cell phone. Although you can't get close to some of the venues, you can see the BMX course, the Athlete's Village, and the Archery Range, among others. You may see some Olympians in training (we saw some of the cyclists while we were there).... More

I spent a week at the Olympic Training Center on a coach training trip. I had the pleasure of working, eating and enjoying the entire center. Even though I was here for work, it was an enjoyable place that everyone should visit if they get the chance, You get to see the place where our Olympic athletes live and train... More

....but here it is...I had never been to this amazing place until last December. Schools take their kids there for field trips, local neighbors walk all over the compound in peace and safety, world class atheletes practice at various sports and there is a BMX course that is pretty darn cool. The center is located in Eastlake, a high end... More

Not many people know about this fabulous site! Beautiful setting with views of Otay Lakes. If you are lucky, you can catch multiple Olympic athletes practicing or competing. Great outdoor spot for a brisk walk even if you don't encounter athletic action.Wear walking shoes!!

The BMX bike courses are amazing. Check practice schedules to see actual athletes in training. There is also a BMX course that you can pay to go on if you bring your bike and safety equipment. But call in advance for hours. Wear plenty of sunscreen as there is little shade. You can take a free golf cart tour around... More

I'm a big Olympic fan, so the tour of the Chula Vista facility was a real treat. I was disappointed that the gift shop was half the size it used to be. But they're expanding the sports venues tremendously. If you walk the Olympic Path, pay attention to the rattlesnake signs. Also, keep in mind that while you can read... More
