Think you can’t afford a vacation this year? This is one of my top ten ideas for fun and relaxation close to home.

Take a tour of your State Capitol building.  This is something everyone should do at least once.  This may be a bit of a drive depending on where you live, but will be worth it.  If you have children spend a few days before the trip helping them study your state.  After the tour, encourage them to talk, ask questions and perhaps write an essay.
