    Stand at exactly one mile high on the capitol’s steps (there are "Mile High Markers"). Then, take a free tour of this 24-karat-gold-domed building’s magnificent interior.

    Free tours! Really interesting way to spend an hour and learn about Colorado history, plus it's the only way to go up to the dome, which gives a 360 view of Denver and beyond.

    Enjoy the view of the Rocky Mountains at the top of the steps facing west. Take in the splendor of the sparkling gold dome, just refurbished. Can you find the step marking one mile high? (5,280 ft.)

    State law prohibits the construction of any structure that would block the view (of like 200 mountain peaks) from the golden dome.

    Intentionally reminiscent of the United States Capitol, it was constructed in the 1890s from Colorado white granite, and the distinctive gold dome consists of real gold plate. Read more

    If you can make it past security, head to the broom closet in the hallway on the left, next to the governor's office. I left half a bag of corn chips there in case anyone gets hungry. Enjoy!

    The Denver State Capitol uses the entire world's supply of Colorado onyx as wainscot paneling. Seriously, the world's supply. No more has ever been found.

    Welcome to the Colorado Capitol. This is truly one of the most historic buildings in Denver. Be sure to check out the House Chamber, Senate Chamber and old Supreme Court Chamber.

    The Colorado capitol was locally sourced -- its 272-foot-tall tower with marble from Gunnison, rose onyx inside from Beulah and the dome's gold donated by the Colorado Mining Association, LEED (EB).

    On Saturday mornings you can catch @pugofwar doing Tai Chi on the steps. If he gets winded, he will take a break and sip on Chai tea.

    Take the tour of the building. It's free, takes about 45 minutes and it's fascinating. You can then take the narrow staircase to the Dome and get great views of the city and the Rocky Mountains.
