The PA Capitol

Hmm..what to do on a Sunday?

Harrisburg is Pennsylvania’s state capital and it’s only about 15 miles from here so we went to have a look at it. This is the best time to drive downtown in any city because there is no traffic and the street parking is available and free.

The next tour of the capitol building was just beginning as we arrived. There was a busload of people there for the tour and we just tagged along with them.

When President Theodore Roosevelt attended the dedication of the building on October 4, 1906, he said, “This is the handsomest building I ever saw.”  It is impressive, that’s for sure.

As we exited the building we came out to a podium with a microphone. I tried to get the town’s attention but nobody listened. Oh well, it was a nice view down State Street to the Susquehanna River.

After that we found a place to have lunch and drove around the downtown a bit before going home.
