Texas is a state that is big and bold in character and so it comes as no surprise that the Texas State Capitol Building is also bold in design and stature. It has a beautiful rotunda with a dome with one big star in the middle and the letters of Texas surrounding it. The lone star was on display everywhere and my kids and I had a great time finding them even on the fence surrounding the building. After checking out the the state senate, the house of representatives, and the Governors office, we discovered the gift shop and brought home a few small Texas souvenirs for the folks back home. If you are like us, and you are really into checking out state capitol buildings, this one won’t disappoint.
