We took a walk to the capitol area from our 3rd ave hotel. Lots of hills and construction but well worth the walk. Beautiful view of the city, and beautiful structure. Also nearby is the war memorial which is also pretty impressive.

Stopped here to show my daughter a little more of living history. The building itself is beautiful and the points on the self guided tour are interesting. We enjoyed this stopping point and a break from the humidity.

No there is not a dress code, but one should not be required for a visitor, of any age, to the State Capitol. The Capitol is a very historic building and I hope he enjoys his visit. If he has a guide, have him ask them to... More
