Opened in 1939 on the site of the original Chinatown, it was the last of the great American rail stations to be built, at a cost at the time of $11 million. By 1971, just seven passenger trains a day were running here; however, it's a bit busier today, and its Mission-style exterior, marble floors, high ceilings and decorative tiles make it a handsome place. However, don't confuse it with the Spanish colonial post office that stands next to it.

LA's Union Station is compact, efficient and easy to navigate, plus it maintains a nice Art Deco style which sets you in a pleasant mood for your travels. Train travel can be overlooked in Southern California, but it makes for a great (traffic free!) way to move up and down the coast.
Union Station is a beautiful spot in Los Angeles. While I've caught the Surf Liner here to go to Santa Barbara, I also love that they get involved in the community and have had operas here and other events. It's a beautiful spot to even just walk around.
