  • I love state capitols, and this one is amazing - looks like a large castle. The grounds are kept up nicely, and the surrounding parks with carousel are nice to walk through. I like the different governor statues on the sides of the building. Parking is a little scarce, but you can normally find something nearby and walk.
  • It's a small area and there doesn't seem to be much for parking. It's a Pokemon nest spawning point though. They show up pretty often and all around the area you can find them. The state capitol police may stop and ask what you're doing but, for now, seem to be okay with you hanging around for Pokemon. As long as no one does anything stupid, or illegal, it should stay that way.
  • Great place to relax and walk your dog.
  • Big is a good place to catch the best Pokemon in Pokemon go
  • I Its a government facilty you can only visit if allowed
