The State Capitol building is hard to miss. It is a wonderful sight and an awe inspiring piece of architecture. Once you go through security you can walk around and see the different shadow boxes of each county in California, find your favorite Senator's office door, or walk by the enormous door of the Governor himself, Arnold! It is a huge door. If you are lucky you might see him in the building. You can walk in the rotunda and hear your echo. The museums throughout the first floor and basement are neat to look and see the history of Sacramento and California.
Outside on the large lawns are beautiful trees in the spring and lots of great shade for a picnic lunch.
