The elegant Main Hall with its vaulted ceiling more than 90-feet high and marble floors is reminiscent of the days when railway travel was fashionable. Union Station opened in 1908, fell into severe disrepair in the 1940s. It underwent a monumental restoration project and reopened in 1988. Restaurants, including an international food court, and more than 100 specialty shops draw visitors. Its proximity to the Library of Congress and the U.S. Capitol make it a perfect midday stop for lunch. Still a working train station, Amtrak has service from here to all points in the country.
If you take the rapid transit to get in and out of DC, this is a logistical have to on your list of places to see. Not really in "place to see" though. It's a transport station, with lots of stores for shopping. With so much to see in DC, not worth sticking around.
We came here hoping to find some lunch but everything was REALLY pricey! There's tons of greasy foods to choose from but if you want a salad it's going to cost you about $7 for a small one. Come to think of it, everything there was about $7... It's a nice place to go and just look at shops though. Just eat before you come.
union station is the best train station in the world. while walking in it i feel like im walking through a palace. there is a movie theater for crying out loud! tons of restaurants, metro right there, bus, plenty of shops, where the Nationals were unveiled, and... just simply amazing. go there even if you dont have a train to catch.
