What a great building. We walked through on a Monday morning in August and were surprised how accessible everything is. We are from California and could not believe how nice everyone was. We even got to meet the Governor and he was gracious enough to...More

While we were downtown, we stopped by the Capitol. A beautiful building with great architecture. We were able to walk freely around the capital and admire all it had to offer.

We dropped into the Idaho Captiol to have a look see. It was an interesting visit although, like many state capitols, not really a great deal to see. The grounds are lovely and Boise is a beautiful area.

The Boise Capital building is incredible. The marble is beautiful. You can just walk in and look around. The security guard was great to talk about the history of the building.
