The California State Capitol – a photo essay

The California State Capitol kicked off the Explore Sacramento! series last week.  There is a lot of history both in the capitol and on the grounds.  However, Capitol Park offers something for everyone.

After detailing the monuments, history, flowers, and war memorials last week, this week focuses on the beauty of the State Capitol in photos.  So take a look back and enjoy the history and learn more about the California State Capitol or just enjoy the beautiful photos on the grounds throughout Capitol Park.

Whether you explore Sacramento’s history in Old Sacramento or just a walk through the streets of downtown, the California State Capitol building is a beautiful and historic building in the heart of the capital city.

Explore Sacramento! is a series that seeks to discover and explore the sites, sounds, communities, and things to do in Sacramento and northern California.

  1. Great shots, Jeremy! I haven’t been to Sacramento in many years, but definitely need to return sometime.

  2. Wow.. everything looks so green! Great photos. I know it’s weird, but I have not spent much time exploring Sac even though I grew up 45 minutes away.

  3. Ayngelina says:

    Wow that is incredible lush, nice photos.

  4. What a beautiful state capitol we have here in California. Great pics!

  5. Sacramento looks really beautiful. One of these days we will have a good reason to make there. In the meantime, we have posts like this.

    This park is one of my favorite places to go in Sacramento. I love to take a long walk there, especially when the rose garden is in full bloom. The variety of trees from around the world is stunning!

    • These photos were actually taken in the spring when everything was in full bloom. I actually spent an hour just walking the grounds of the capitol, taking photos, and just learning about the history and memorials. I have to admit I learned a lot and enjoyed a beautiful day!

  7. looks very luscious and green. i love city parks, was just in melbourne’s this morning. hopefully get up to sacramento sometime soon when i hit california!

    • City parks are very underrated. While national and state parks get a lot of love here in the US, the city parks may be some of the best of any in the country. Central Park in NYC comes to mind.

  8. Looks really pretty, but I am waiting for the Folsom photo essay.

  9. Everything looks so green and bright! I need to spend more time in California…

  10. Hey Jeremy, that’s a lot of nice pictures there! Makes me wanna buy a ticket and fly back to the USA and explore California. Last time I was there was back in 1999.

  11. Love all the green. Reminds me of springtime!

  12. Love the vibrant green in the pictures! Never new California had so much green ;)

    Great photo collage. I need to more of these kinds of sets- I like how you can see some many different angles!

  14. All the times I’ve visited Sacramento it’s never looked like this! But then again I was in the rest of the city and not at the state capitol.

  15. Laurel says:

    I love how green everything is, it gives me a very positive impression of Sacramento.

  16. Erik says:

    Makes me wish I had visited there on my recent trip to NoCal. Alas, there was so much to see!

  17. Christina says:

    The State Capitol looks like a nice place to hang out! And so green!
