    Capital Views

    The Capital grounds span approximately 22acres. See sprawling park-like grass with sidewalks, fountains, statues/monuments and night lighting. Bring a blanket and enjoy a picnic with your pup. Dogs are allowed on the grounds, but not inside the buildings.

    There’s a park right outside the capitol building that’s very nice which was a nice walk.
