... uneventful and neither of us was up to any sightseeing, so we chose a seafood restaurant for dinner that was only half a mile from the hotel. It was featured on the food network show Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and had hugely positive reviews on Yelp.

The state house dominates the skyline, and is a building remeniscent of the dome building in washington dc, it is beautiful and one of my favourite buildings in the USA.
