Jumping By the Georgia State Capitol

Over the years I’ve visited quite a few state capitol buildings and definitely wanted to stop by Georgia’s too. I always make sure to get some jumping shots and (if possible), I like to go inside to learn more about the history of the state and the building.

Here are a some of the capitols that I’ve visited:

Jumping By the Pennsylvania State Capitol

Last July Kim, Lucas and I headed to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania due to the Stay 1, Get 1 promotion from Club Carlson. We had a lot of options to earn our bonuses for Radisson and Country Inn.
With not too many Park Inn’s around the U.S. we had to figure out which Park Inn was closest to home. We ended up booking two nights (one in each of our names) at the Park Inn Harrisburg West.

Harrisburg isn’t exactly a glamorous city but we found plenty to do and had a nice time during our visit.

Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania so we had to stop by the Capitol Building to check it out.

When we arrived, the Capitol was already closed for the day. I was hoping to get inside and do a tour but that wasn’t going to happen this time.

I was a bit bummed that I couldn’t see inside but still found the building to be really impressive. The green tiled dome, which I read is made of terra cotta was an amazing site to see. It is topped by a 14.5 foot statue called Commonwealth. The fountain at the back of the building was also really fun to watch.

The Pennsylvania State Capitol was worth visiting, even if we could only view it from the outside. It also made for a great place for a jump!
