Union Station in Los Angeles is known as the central hub for all things public transportation in Southern California. It's busy much of the time due to the fact that it is the starting and ending point for thousands of patrons every year. There is such a difference between buildings from this era to that of 30's and 40's. The... More

Union Station in LA, is an old historic building. When there, one should always walk around and view the beautiful architecture of the entire complex. The walk won't take long to do so, but one will find it very interesting.

The station wasn't bad. I was sort of expecting worst.

The lounge could have used an air filter/purifier because it smelled a... More

It is the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. Part... More

I had read about Union Station and had to see it. Took the Metro from 7th Street and was amazed at what I saw. The woman playing piano, the seats in the big waiting area, the architecture and the atmosphere were all amazing.

This historic downtown train station is a worthy destination for a cultural trip. It has lots of history while providing an actual function with respect to Los Angeles' transporation.

Beautiful architecture, wonderful retro restaurants, and great on a sunny day. The central hub for all public transport in LA, and includes mega bus accessibility. Plus Olvera street is right next door in case you want to get some tacos :)

Its amazing to think about the history of this station, all the soldiers that came through during the war, all the children that take the train to the San Diego zoo as their first train ride, this is why so many Angelenos have a connection to Union Station. The space inside the station in inspired by the many beautiful tiles... More
