Although it was never my intent, I have visited many state capitals in my travels around the US. Some of them were truly memorable and some were just average. Because the capital typically contains the government center and because much effort and investment is made in these government buildings, they are frequently must-see attractions for the tourist. It is also interesting that, in the United States, state capitals are seldom the largest city in the state. I’m not sure why that is, but it seems different around the world.
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma — A domestic terrorist put this city on the tourist destination map with his abominable act on April 19, 1995.
Other Midwestern US capitals I have visited for which I have no pictures:
