Learning about the capitol building with a great way to spend the morning. The guide was great and we enjoyed the company of one other couple. If you have the time it is worth learning about the history and the nature of the building.

The ONLY tall building in Bismarck. My main interest in the Capitol grounds were the trails. The trails around the capitol were ones I frequented on my bike and are very nice.
