Not many know this, but the Virginia State Capitol is the second oldest functioning capitol in the United States. Designed 1785 by Thomas Jefferson, he based the structure of the capitol on his inspiration, a Roman temple Maison Carree. The architecture of the capitol is indeed a thing of beauty and worth ogling at. The busts of the seven Virginia born presidents grace the hall along with a life like statue of George Washington, probably the only one scaled to size in all of the United States. Open to the public, this symbol of governance should certainly make it on your itinerary; the best way to see the capitol is through a guided tour that takes place every hour.
