We plan to spend many hours on the couch this February, watching to see whether anyone can beat Shaun White—and if Lolo Jones is any good at bobsledding. But even if a trip to Sochi, Russia, is out of the question, it’s still possible to get a taste of the action closer to home. Learn about top winter athletes through the years at the Olympic Park Museum in Park City, UT (utaholympiclegacy.com). Then ski or snowboard on the slopes of Deer Valley or Canyons (see a full list of local resorts and lodging at visitparkcity.com). You can even test your Olympic skills by taking a run on the skeleton and bobsled courses from the 2002 Games.
Don't watch every game from the same ol' barstool. From stadiums to interactive museums, we’ve rounded up the best places to get a closer look at the action—plus ways to stay active while you’re following your favorite sport.
