There are 3 levels and you can view the House of Reps and Senate rooms. A cool thing is in the visitors center there is a hundred yr. old,... More

It is more or less a smaller version of its Washington cousin, but the Utah State Capitol is located at least as perfect at the US Capitol. From the front steps of the building you have a magnificent view of the entire valley - from Cottonwood Canyon to the Kennecott Copper Mine. And all the way to Draper in the... More
