Union Station is one of the most popular sights in Washington, D.C., with over 40 million visitors coming to see it each year. It is not only a railway and subway station but also a bustling shopping center and a great place to dine in.
The shops here range from open stalls in the east hall to stores hosting expensive brands, like Victoria's Secret. The restaurants and cafés offer just as much choice and variety. From pizza or a steak to fresh-made sushi, there is plenty to pick from.
Come in April, yet another market opens just outside the Union Station, which fills with vendors offering freshly baked pastries as well as handcrafted goods. This market closes on Sundays and is definitively over for the year by October.
The Union Station is not famous only for its shops, however. Its magnificent building is a popular tourist attraction in its own right. Founded in 1907, it was designed by Daniel H. Burnham and is considered a masterful example of the Beaux-Arts architectural style.
