Sacramento, CA

Rounding off my capitol tours was California! California is my home state so I’ve definitely been to this capitol a few times, but it’s always a hoot to visit it again. It’s not the most glamorous capitol out there, but

Carson City, NV

Carson city is home to Nevada’s state capitol. The city itself isn’t to outrageously amazing, but it’s fun to walk down the main street and see everything around town. The state capitol was practically desserted. Apparently the capitol itself doesn’t

Salem, OR

Oregon’s state capitol was fun to go through. They allow you to climb to the top of the building and get an up close look at the sculpture on top which turns out to be a lumberjack of sorts although

Olympia, WA

The Washington State Capitol was fairly grand. Almost every chandelier was done by Tiffany which is super cool. The main chandelier in the rotunda is so big you could apparently fit a volkswagen beetle inside it! One of my favorite

Victoria, BC

Victoria is where the legislature meets for British Columbia. I got to walk through the legislature building which was super cool! They only had 1 house which was kinda weird, but super cool. Their building was also a lot more

Boise reminded me of Davis, CA. It seemed as though everyone was on their bikes the entire time, it was super nice. They had an amazing memorial to Anne Frank that had the Universal Declaration of Human Rights sitting there.

Salt Lake City, UT

Salt Lake city actually turned out to be more fun than I could have imagined. The capitol building was almost all entirely made out of marble which was kinda neat. Other than that there wasn’t too much special about the

Bismarck, ND

North Dakota had what I like to call a working capitol. It wasn’t designed to look grand or anything, but was designed to be a working place. It was actually really nice to see a capitol building like that. Even

Pierre, SD

South Dakota had a pretty nice state capitol building. Built in 1910 the capitol cost a little under $1,000,000 which brings it up to roughly $58,000,000 in today’s dollars which doesn’t seem like much compared to some of the other
