Unfortunately for my waistline I can't go anywhere without checking out their gourmet chocolate and their cupcakes. The Chocolat Bar on Bannock Street has very smooth dark chocolate so it's a good thing I won't be able to visit often!
A Cupcake Paradise was just a few doors down and luckily was only selling the normal sized cupcakes and not the giant ones. I got four different flavors and while they were pretty good, they were a bit dry.
The Capitol building was completed in 1920 and the dome is topped with a bronze eagle.
The interior contains four different types of marble. The first floor is set up as a self-guided tour of the history of Idaho and the function of its government. During my visit I arrived at the lunch hour just as hordes of Junior Achievement high schools kids dressed in their finest were exiting the building. Glad I missed that!
Missing from the Capitol was the usual display of art. Even a quick glance in the chambers didn't reveal anything. But that's okay because downtown Boise is FILLED with murals!
