I am pretty sure no one is going to pick my state's capital and I will admit it's really not that exciting lol


(Albany, NY haha)

I thought Albany was nice, although I haven't seen much of Upstate NY so I don't have a good basis of comparison.

Albany is fine. It's just not anything special. People don't vacation there. I have lived in NY 37 years and only went there once b/c there was a decent mall when I was going to school upstate.

In fairness, a trip to Honolulu usually means the entire island of Oahu. I don’t know who would ever go there and only stay within the city limits. There’s no shortage of tourist areas/attractions.

While you can’t drive around the entire island, you can loop around much of it in under 2 hours. Waikiki to the North Shore is maybe 30 miles? That’s the same as Los Angeles to Disneyland, and I think we’d all say that’s still LA for the vacationer.

I think a dark horse here might be Minneapolis/St. Paul
(And yes, i know Minneapolis is not the capital. But they do border each other.)

Never been in the winter, but as a summer trip, there is plenty to do both indoors and out.

Surprised Santa Fe hasn't popped up.


The two state capitals that interest me the most (in terms of visiting) are Providence and Annapolis.

What is the definition of a "visitor"? How did they know I was there?
