Whenever Deana and I are in a capitol city, we visit the Capitol Building! The Colorado State Capitol is a great old building with surrounding attractions and museums! It is well located and has a "food truck" thing on weekends! Cool place! Salute!

Start off from 16th street market and walk through the capitol building to the outdoor art exhibits. Just like any large city, lots of homeless but they didn't bother us. Great pictures and views of the capitol.
