A sad excuse for a capitol built in the 70's so its no surprise. The view from the 23rd floor is the main redeeming feature.

First time in Tallahassee, self guided tour of the Capitol is highly recommended. There is plenty of history in this building. The state employees we met were amazingly helpful. The building has 22 floors and you have to see the views from the top.
