"The Untouchables", "Public Enemies", "Man of Steel" all some of the iconic movies shot at this landmark location. It's also a working train station too. The main terminal of Union Station offers one of the most iconic old-school Chicago views money can afford (note: it's free to visit the main terminal). It's great for people-watching, taking a quick snapshot, and is a good place to go to escape an unexpected summer rainstorm or that expected winter windchill. Take a ride to the suburbs or a train to Denver, but make sure to check this place out and take it all in before you leave.
