Fodor's Review

You can always find your way to Union Station by heading toward the huge neon "go by train" sign atop the 150-foot-tall Romanesque Revival clock tower that looms high above the building. Originally opened in 1896, the station's vast lobby area, with high ceilings and marble floors, is worth a brief visit if you hold any nostalgia for the heyday of rail travel in the United States. Amtrak trains stop here.
