I'm not even really sure Carson City actually exists. It's one of those places like Fargo ND. Everyone has heard of it, but no ones actually been there.

Yes! All the time. I live in Madison and there are events around the Capitol square constantly. It's a beautiful building and most of our non church wedding photos were taken inside or on the grounds.

People die in Trenton. New Jersey is one of the deadliest places on earth. Why North Koreans stay to the left of California.

Many times. Could see it from school. Between classes i would walk and go right by it and went inside a few times.

07/26/12 4:23 am

I've been several times. I've always had an interest in history and growing up we never had much money. Thankfully we lived in the San Antonio/Austin area because there are TONS of fascinating historical sites to visit for free, including the Capitol.

Been there, done that...St. Paul, Minnesota, where the state legislature spits out new laws much like a Minnesota packing plant spews out sausages.

Too far and it's the middle of nowhere

Louisiana has the tallest state capital in the US at 450 feet, 34 floors!! On the 27th floor, there is an observation deck. Also, you can still see the bullet holes in the walls where Huey long was assassinated!

07/25/12 9:52 pm

I have lived in TX 4 years and have never seen the capital. When I lived in Baton Rouge, I toured the capital several times and even attended a gala dinner at the governors mansion.

Only because in Alaska it is located in Juneau. A small town SE of Anchorage (our *major* city). Kind of a strange set up we have going in up here.

07/25/12 8:52 pm

I would but there's nothing exciting in Albany.

07/25/12 6:16 pm

Delaware's capitol building is the best out of all the states

07/25/12 6:14 pm

Yep. On my eighth grade Springfield trip.

Texans are proud. I'm not surprised that 3/4 of us have visited Fha capitol in Austin.

Yes, on a tour years ago as a kid, and another tour as an adult two years ago when I was there on business anyway. Got sent to DC on business as well, and stayed a few extra days to play tourist, including that capitol building. If you haven't yet, you should. It's pretty cool.

Harrisburg is such a boring place. But everything around it is really nice. Except Philadelphia.

There is nothing worth visiting in Tallahassee, it's a good 8-9 hours from my house. No thanks!

07/25/12 1:13 pm

Required Field Trip in Michigan. I wanted to kill myself, the whole time I was there. What 11 year old wants to see the capitol.
