The California State Capitol is located in Sacramento, California. The building houses both the California Senate and its House of Representatives. It also has the governor’s office. Construction of the Neoclassical structure copied from the United States’ Capitol in Washington, D.C., was done between 1861 and 1874. The Capitol is a National Historical Landmark. The top of the spire on the dome is 247 feet (75.3 m) above the ground. Surrounding the building is a beautiful park with several memorial statues. Sacramento is both the capital city of the State of California and the county seat of Sacramento County. The City is located in the northern part of the state at the confluence of the Sacramento River and the American River. Sacramento has a deep sea connection to the San Francisco Bay and acts as an inland port. Historically, the area was the near the center of the California Gold Rush of 1849.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
