Update — January 2017
We send out a newsletter with capitol news every six months. Called the Capitol Connoisseur, it’s nothing grand or lengthy, just some goings-on at the capitols and among other capitol travelers. One of our capitol travelers asked us to post them here, so we’re giving it a try. If you’d like to read our most recent newsletter, click on this: Capitol Connoisseur Winter/Spring 2017.
Step 1. Get the Passport Book
The Capitol Collection Souvenir Passport Book is your indispensable and comprehensive guide to the state capitols. It provides you with information about each capitol:
- historical/descriptive content
- a picture
- stamp location
Step 2. Travel
Once you have your Capitol Collection Souvenir Passport Book you are ready for an adventure that will take you to every corner of the United States, and showcase the very best that each state has to offer. It is always a good idea to call ahead and make sure a capitol won’t be closed on a day that you intend to visit. Legislative sessions, special events and miscellaneous conditions can affect public access, so call ahead! Our website has information for each capitol, updated every six months, so it’s good to make use of that information and make sure!
Step 3. Open the Passport
Refer to the hand stamp location guide at the back of your Souvenir Passport Book – not every capitol keeps its stamp in the same place.You maybe able to stamp the book yourself, or someone at the capitol may do it; some capitols may have the stamp in public view, while others will need to be asked for it. Whatever the scenario, make sure the date is correct and get your stamp!
Step 4. Get Your Book Stamped
This is the exciting part, no?
Step 5. You’re Done!
Once you have your stamp, mark off that capitol in the back of the book …this will help you keep track!

CAPITOL TRAVELER IN THE KNOW!
One of our colleagues here in Denver has been asked to comment on life in the capital city vs. life in all the rest. While it’s not specifically about the capitol buildings, you might find the article interesting. It will inform you for your own capital city jaunts!

We’ve also been written up by someone who found the book and loved it. Visit The Travel Doctor to see what she has to say. 🙂
