  • Interesting guided tour. Well worth doing if visiting Columbia. Paintings and architecture are great. 
  • The state house is beautiful on the inside. Admission is free. If your in downtown and showing your visiting friends/relatives around stop by. 
  • Very well maintained grounds and obviously pressure washed on a regular basis. Was a great pokè stop spot! Now that all of the pokè stops have been removed the grass seems less green and the Senate house is just a dull grey shell of its former Pokèmon glory.
  • Shot some timelapses here last night. It's a really cool building and a nice area in general. The security personnel was very friendly. They checked in on what we were doing and were fine with it.
  • Great views of a historic building. Well lit paths all around. Plenty of benches. Lots of statues and monuments. Has a few PokeStops if that's what you're looking for.
  • Very impressive, amazing history. I recommend going on a weekday so you can see real life politicians in their natural habitat. The tour is an hour or you can pick up a brochure and wander around.
  • We recently visited the State House for a School Choice Rally. This annual event was very exciting. The State House grounds were very clean and inviting. Our children felt very safe and we even threw Frisbees on the lawn with strangers. Although we were invited to go inside and speak with legislators, we elected to remain outside and enjoy the afternoon. We ate Chic-fil-a and watched as they distributed the overflow of sandwiches to strangers as they passed by. Another great place to visit in SC.
