The Capitol dome is one of the largest, and dare I say one of the most beautiful, in the United States.

Sacramento is California's fourth state capitol The building dates back to the 1800s, and underwent a multi-million dollar restoration. The gardens behind are lovely, especially the rose garden.

The California State Capitol is home to the government of California. The building houses the state legislature and the office of the governor, Gerry Brown. After visiting the capitol building you can take a walk through the State Capitol Park, and eat at Cafeteria 15L where you may run into some…

Obviously, Sacramento is the capitol of California. If you're not a elementary school student, I'd suggest to just walk though Capitol block and takes some pictures and enjoy the weather! There are a ton of shops, eateries, and cafes nearby.
