State Capitols

Eric and I have somewhat unintentionally started a quest to visit all of the state capitol buildings in the United States. (As a kid, I had a bucket list item to visit all the state capitals, and it seems we are well on our way.) It's been a fun adventure; they are all different and the tour guides are usually really into telling us about the history of the state, the building(s), and the politics. Clink the links below to see write ups of our tours (some with guides, some self-guided).

Total State Capitols toured: 12/50

California - Sacramento (May 31, 2017)
Connecticut - Hartford (October 2016)
Iowa - Des Moines (August 2, 2017)
Kentucky - Frankfort (December 27, 2017)
Nebraska - Lincoln (August 2, 2017)
Nevada - Carson City (May 23, 2017)
New Mexico - Santa Fe (July 17, 2017)
North Carolina - Raleigh (June 21, 2017)
North Dakota - Bismarck (July 2015)
Oklahoma - Oklahoma City (July 10, 2017)
Vermont - Montpelier (October 2016)
Wisconsin - Madison (July 2016)

And of course, we've been to the capital of all the states, the US Capitol building in Washington, DC. We've also been inside the White House.




We've been to the following capital cities but haven't yet been inside the capitol building:

Alabama - Montgomery (stopped for lunch only en route to Florida)
Arizona - Phoenix (for a conference in 2013)
Colorado - Denver (timing hasn't been good yet)
Georgia - Atlanta (for the Final Four)
Indiana - Indianapolis (there is no excuse for this one, but at least I went during school growing up)
Iowa - Des Moines (stopped for lunch)
Maryland - Annapolis (have been on the grounds, but not inside)
Massachusetts - Boston (visited a museum en route to visit a friend)
Minnesota - St Paul (well, the Minneapolis side, for a baseball game)
Montana - Helena (drove through en route to Glacier National Park)
Ohio - Columbus (probably no good excuse here either)
Pennsylvania - Harrisburg (I've been on the grounds since my grandparents used to live here)
(I've been to Providence, RI, but Eric hasn't yet.)
South Dakota - Pierre (drove through)
Tennessee - Nashville (conference and visiting friends)
Virginia - Richmond (drove through)
West Virginia - Charleston (drove through, had lunch)
