No building in Springfield is nearly as stunning as the Illinois State Capitol. Located a little bit off by itself, the building is one of the tallest capitol buildings in the US. Unlike some complexes, the Illinois building often is open on weekends for both guided and casual visits. Leave plenty of time to walk the halls. Oh, and yes, one of its many claims to fame is that it was used as a backdrop for the film, “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde”.
