First time ever being inside Washington D.C. Union Station. I was impressed by how clean and well maintained it is. Not only do they have one of my favorite food places (Bojangles), I felt very safe during my visit.

A very grand place to arrive in the Nation's Capital. Splendid old architecture in great shape. And a good place to get some food, mostly a food court, but a few real restaurants. Metro crossroads.
