#28 Snag a selfie at Michigan’s State Capitol

Region: Mid-Michigan

Location: 100 N Capitol Ave, Lansing, MI 48933

Our writer Jennifer Bowman says: “This first destination may be an obvious choice, but a visit to Michigan’s State Capitol is practically “required reading” for everyone who visits Lansing. See the iconic dome ceiling and more than nine acres of beautiful, hand-painted surfaces as you learn about the building’s history and the legislative process. Free, guided tours are available Monday through Saturday, but don’t fret if you miss one of the regularly scheduled departure times—simply tag along with another group or grab a brochure and start exploring! Groups of ten or more will need to RSVP.”
