We visited the Florida State Capital to visit the capital and learn about the government. We got to visit the Sections where meetings are held, and it was cool seeing these chambers. We also got to go to the top, via an express Elevator. Many...More

As Texans, we were a little underwhelmed by the Capitol, but it’s an interesting setup. We didn’t really know what to expect and it seemed like everything was shut down even though it was a weekday. Not much was going on. We didn’t take a...More

The Florida Capital building has a great 360 degree view from the 22nd floor. You can see out for miles in all directions. The guides are friendly and very knowledgeable. Great place to hold an event.

Because we spend so much time in the Old Capitol Building we only had about 20 minutes, so we took the elevator to the 22nd floor and were astounded by the views! What a pleasant surprise!
