If you want to visit you elected offical this is the building that you can go to. Make sure you check where you are going as you can get lost in them.

There were too many highlights about this place. We had meetings with Senators and Congressmen throughout the day. It was so interesting to walk in the hallways in different building to lobby for rights of underserved groups.

Our Tour took us on a brief tour inside. The security line was long and time-consuming. But well worth the wait, Say Paul Ryans office.

We went to the Russell Building to meet with our senators from Michigan. It's gorgeous, massive and historic. The rotunda seems to be styled a lot like the Capitol Building.
