Before Pokémon Go was released, I didn't spend much time on the Capitol Grounds. However, there are a number of Pokestops on the grounds and a couple of gymnasiums. Therefore, after I started playing the game I spent plenty of time on the Capitol Grounds....More

You can do a self-tour of the capitol building in 30-45 minutes, and it's worth your time. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and you can just wander around taking it all in. Be sure to visit the old Senate chamber (which is now filled...More

Stunningly beautiful Christmas light displays during Christmastime. Well worth driving by after dark, or park your car and take a leisurely walk down highway 395. Don't forget to drive by or walk by the Governor's mansion on Mountain street also.
