  • This is a simple capital. Lots of rich history to test yourself on. The grounds are a really pretty walk. The 4th is closed which is where the galleries are. There is a super cool library you can peek...  more »

  • Many great laws came to pass here, but also some not so great ones. Fairly satisfied for the most part, except for the ones im not all that satisfied with. Check it out if you can, but it you can't, its cool.
  • Guided tours are available or you can walk around the State House (since there are two oval shaped pathways) and see the monuments yourself. There is metered parking around the State House. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
  • The South Carolina State House is one of the most beautiful capitol buildings in America. Not only is the architecture of the building beautiful but also the grounds are a botanical garden with hundreds of different species of trees, bushes, and flowers. It is easy to spend hours walking along the many paths admiring the grounds. There are also many monuments, statues, and historical markers to enjoy. I have been to the capitol many times and it is enjoyable all year long. Don't forget to go inside the building itself. Take a guided tour or get a brochure and see it on your own.
  • Great hospitality. Very fun tour. Not very convenient parking (street meter parking) but parking garages a few blocks away.
  • Great place to visit with your family or friends. I highly suggest a tour, which I believe they have every hour. Our guide was a nice gentlemen, taking us back in the history of South Carolina. We had a great time at the Capitol!
