Historic train station, with lots of shopping inside. Also very close to the US Capitol Building.

Washington Union Station is one of the country’s first great union railroad terminals. Designed by renowned architect, Daniel Burnham, the station opened on October 27, 1907 and was completed in April 1908. During its heyday in the early 1940’s, Union Station was a thriving transportation hub serving up to 42,000 passengers daily. After 1945, conditions deteriorated quickly. The demand on transportation during World War II wore greatly on the station, and repairs were often done inexpensively, diminishing the station’s elegance. Public trends shifted from rail to cars and planes for long-distance travel, which further diminished rail passenger revenues, station activity and the feeling of excitement that once percolated through the building. Washington Union Station is a major train station, transportation hub, and leisure destination in Washington, D.C. It is Amtrak's headquarters and the railroad's second-busiest station with annual ridership of just under 5 million. The station also serves MARC and VRE commuter rail services, the Washington Metro, and buses.

Completed in 1908 and designed by Daniel Burnham, this is a quintessential neoclassical building with views to the Capitol. The Great Hall has beautiful barrel vaults with gilded medallions and is a great place to people watch. You can catch Amtrak or the Metro here, but also there are a ton of restaurants, an extensive food court, and many stores to shop for apparel, skincare, etc.
