Say what you want about the occupants and denizens of these buildings ( :) ), but the architecture, atmosphere, and aura around the Capitol Hill area, and the Capitol building, is beautiful, and well worth spending some time at...for both the area, the history, and...More

The last time I was here the Capitol was shrouded in scaffolding but the result is sensational with the building a gleaming white marble brilliant from and distance and in sunlight. Couldn’t keep my eyes off it.

I did the tour twice in two days. The first day, the tour guide was more interested in keeping the group together than telling us about the sights. The second tour was better and much more informative. We lucked out...we did not have reservations, but...More
