A key feature in the Denver skyline because of its gold bell-shaped dome, the Capitol Building, fittingly in the Mile High City, has a point located at exactly 5,280 feet above sea level. Free tours are available for visitors.

We were here on a Sunday, so the building was closed but we still got to wander around the grounds and step on the 1 mile step.

We took the tour of the building which allows you access to the roof of the dome via 99 steps. The view is well worth it. The building is beautiful.

If you like grand buildings that we paid for where little or nothing goes on then its worth the stop. I myself like history so when in any state capital I check it out. If you are like me get some pics.

Very clean and organized inside. Parking can be difficult as it is downtown but the walk is nice. Very pretty building and location.
