Looking for adventure, social studies and history education? This place has got it! The Louisiana State capital building is the tallest in the county. The observation deck on the top boasts incredible views of the Red Stick city. The Mississippi River view is fantastic and while you're up there, don't forget to check out LSU Tiger Stadium to the North. It is truly a beautifully maintained, real working building, with the mysterious "Governor-Only" elevator.
