I absolutely loved walking around this beautiful plaza. Everything is so clean and well maintained. Plus, the views are amazing. If you go underground there are places to eat, a gift shop and restrooms. This is a definite must visit spot while visiting the area.
Complex has grandeur from the 60/70s. Observation deck, restrooms and water points are available close to the museum and library. Plenty of photo ops. Governors mansion is around the corner as well as several parks. Scavenger hunt for children available
