This incredible free attraction is open to the public. The building is beautiful from the outside, and of course we had to sit in the 13 step to be 1 mile above sea level!! The nice surprise was the inside. It's absolutely beautiful, and they...More

There are public lots all around the capitol. Most are reasonably priced. If you're staying at one of the downtown hotels I would recommend catching the 16th Street Bus.
Is there parking available? Do you have to book a tour ahead of time or just show up?
