The area surrounding the capitol is very beautiful. Lots of big trees, plants, and green grass to adore when near the capitol.

Visited with my son and 2 young grandchildren. Beautiful gardens. The firefighter and Viet Nam monuments are thought provoking and beautifully done. The kids enjoyed running around and chasing squirrels! I would love to go back when all the flowers are in bloom.
