Juneau Alaska. Take a cruise from Seattle and find perhaps the most unique capital in the US.

Albany is perfectly fine, as I considered living there about 35 years ago. A number of good schools (SUNY Albany, Union College, RPI, Albany Med, etc. And real estate is very cheap..

My choice , for a smaller capital experience, is Madison, WI. Great mid-range city!

For a full list:

Madison
Boston
St. Paul
Albany
I'd be curious about Sacramento

For smaller cities Annapolis, MD is a gem

For big cities it's hard to beat Boston, mostly because (to me anyway) of all the really cool historical stuff.

For small cities, I love love love Annapolis.

I really like Austin, TX but I'd encourage anyone going there to take in San Antonio as well - that whole area from Austin to San Antonio has a lot of cool stuff.

The best cities are hard to choose for me. Boston, Denver, Atlanta: these are all great cities. Annapolis is wonderfully quaint.

As for the capitals with the best capitol buildings, that's also hard to choose: Madison, Austin, Springfield, Des Moines, Denver--these are all beautiful buildings.

Boston is amazing. Probably the best state capital IMO.

The same way everyone else does? Tourism tax data?
