At last count, I had been to or through 34 states. So, today, I thought I'd give you a little tidbit about:
13 State Capitals I've Been To or Through
is too hot for most of the year, but I have friends there so I bear with it.
- I don't remember much about Denver
. I was last there when I was about 15 - visiting cousins.
- I spent a night in the Atlanta
airport. Not something I would ever recommend doing.
- I've been to Honolulu
twice and loved it both times.
- I went to Des Moines
on business. The trip was pleasant and the Capitol building was beautiful.
is a wonderful city that is often overlooked. I found it charming.
- I've only driven through Lincoln
. One of these days, I'm going to stop and do some sightseeing.
8. New Mexico
- The Capitol building in Santa Fe
is one of only a few in the U.S. without a dome on it. Instead it is built in the shape of a hogan to honor the state's Native American roots.
is another city I've only driven through. And, the last time I went through, it was snowing.
- I spent a week in Nashville
just last year. It's Capitol is the only one with a former President buried on its grounds.
- Living here, I'm just a little bit partial to Salt Lake City
. I love the mountains that surround the valley and that we have four distinct seasons.
- When I lived there, we drove down to Richmond
for a day. It is a beautiful city, rich with history. I could have spent much more than a day there.
- The old west lives on in Cheyenne
. It, too, has a very nice Capitol.
Which state capital is the largest capital city in the U.S.? The first person to post the correct answer goes into my drawing for this month.
