Most Visited Attraction in Washington It’s Not the Space Needle!?
Have you ever wondered what the most visited attraction in Washington State is?
It might surprise you to learn that it's not the Space Needle or Mount Rainier. In fact, it's not even a tourist destination at all.
First of all, it's one of the most beautifully designed and well-maintained state Capitol buildings in the country. Located on the picturesque Puget Sound, with sweeping views of Mount Olympus and the Olympic Mountains, it's no wonder that so many people come to visit.
Another reason why the state Capitol building is such a popular destination is because of its rich history. It was built between 1922 and 1928 and houses 18 major art installations and monuments on the campus worth looking at and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Today, it houses the offices of the governor, lieutenant governor, and state treasurer, as well as the Washington State Legislature.
Even if you're not interested in politics or history, the state Capitol building is definitely worth a visit. Who knows? You might just end up enjoying it more than you thought you would.
