Beautiful grounds and beautiful buildings surrounding the square. The Capitol was really one of the most attractive ones I've been in (out of 45 and counting). To be at the spot where Robert E Lee was given his commission, where Aaron Burr was tried, and where so many people who played a part in our independence and in our constitution... More

We walked all around the Capital Square Park. It is peaceful and beautiful. A great way to combine exercise with history. The surrounding buildings are awesome and the park is beautiful.

Capitol Square Park, as you might suspect, is impeccably manicured. The buildings are a bit overstated, but, after all, it is Capitol Square. Quiet on the weekends, it's a good place to go when nothing else is happening and you need a few minutes off your feet. The highlight of the public monuments is the one to the the Civil... More

Capitol Square is beautiful, especially on a Spring day. The flowers are usually gorgeous and the squirrels are friendly. There are benches where you can sit and have lunch or just relax and enjoy the scenery.

Even in the winter it is a beautiful park to walk around. A few of the fountains were running. The statues are just beautiful. Must do when you visit the Capitol. Parking is a bit tight in this area, but worth a few block walk.

Enjoy the bit of heaven in the city surrounded by big trees, statues, and a gorgeous capital designed by Thomas Jefferson. Tours in the building are a must.

You can stroll around at your rhythm and take the time to visit or not the buildings in the area. This guarded park is host to a few historical buildings. According to the time you have, you can take a few minutes or spend hours. It is worth it! You can find so much in this area that it should... More
