California State Capitol
Closely resembling a scale model of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., the beautiful, domed California state capitol was built in 1869 and massively renovated in 1976. Sacramento's most distinctive landmark, the capitol has been the stage of many important political dramas in California history. The 1-hour guided tours provide insight into both the building's architecture and the workings of the government it houses. Note: Security has gotten much tighter since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, so be prepared to show some identification.
Daily 9am-5pm. Tours offered every hour on the hour until 4pm
Try to make it to the Capitol,...
Try to make it to the Capitol, it's hard to miss, being tha tit is smack dab in the middle of the city....what's the saying? all raods lead to....no, that's Rome..well I guess there isn't a saying but regardless of its lacking a motto, the Capitol of California is an absolutly gorgeous building with pristine grounds that rival some botanical gardens! Plus, I work there, which makes it extra special super cool! Drop me a line if you'd like a personalized tour of my very beautiful place of employment.
The dome of the state capitol stands proudly in a spacious green park two blocks south of K Street Mall. Recently restored to its original elegance, and still the seat of state government, the luxurious building brims over with finely crafted details. Although you’re free to walk around, you’ll see a lot more if you take one of the free hourly tours (daily 9am–5pm).
