A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I went to visit our firstborn who lives in Virginia. He works at the US Capitol, and on Saturday afternoon he gave us a personal tour of the building. I took lots of pictures, so I thought I'd give everyone a little mini-tour.
The first photo shows the view of the Capitol as we approached from the Capitol South Metro station.
Next, is the view from the other side of the building.
This is the inside of the new Visitor's Center, which opened in December 2008.
Inside the Rotunda.
Old Supreme Court Chamber. This was used by the Supreme Court from 1810 until 1860.
The Brumidi Corridors on the first floor of the Senate Wing.
The view from the top of the Old Post Office.
The riverfront in Alexandria.
If you've never been to our nation's capital, I highly recommend it. It's extremely easy to get around the city (I love the Metro!), the people are friendly, the buildings are really cool, and for history geeks like me, there's plenty to do. Make those reservations now!
