The Texas State Capitol

Everything really IS bigger in Texas.

The Texas State Capitol is the largest state capitol by square footage and is second only in size to the National Capitol in Washington DC.   

But the Capitol in Texas is taller.   15 feet taller.   Take that DC.

We darted in a downpour from the visitors center to the Capitol and squished our way inside and joined up with a tour group.    Being my mother's daughter, I answered one trivia question right and then went on to answer a few more and the guide started teasing me.    When we told him we had to leave he asked "who is going to answer my questions now?"

Definitely worth a visit - even just to look up at the amazing dome and get out of the rain.
