I've read that Sacramento is a vibrant, interesting city with lots of cool neighborhoods and restaurants and all the culture that comes with a good-sized city. Still, there's not much compelling us to travel there. This half-day visit to the state capitol was tacked onto our longer trip to San Francisco. The capitol is interesting and packed with history, not to mention that it's a working building, not just some dusty old museum. But honestly, it's not a trip I would've planned without the 4th grade curriculum, focusing on state history.
Here we go:
|Ornate ceiling in the Senate chamber|
|Current governor, Jerry Brown|
|Popular former Governor|
|Inside the congressional chamber|
|Lily in front of the governor's office, guarded by "Mike the Bear"|
|Mounted police on the front lawn|
