The Most Beautiful Stations in the U.S.

In a January 15th article, Condé Nast Traveler magazine included Washington, DC’s Union Station in a list of the most beautiful train stations in the United States.

“The stunning arched main hall of D.C.’s Union Station is the centerpiece, featuring 22-karat gold leaf decorating the ceiling and 46 statues of Roman soldiers…that appeared in the original 1908 station….Besides being a working Amtrak station, the hub attracts visitors to its…shopping concourse—a whopping 37 million travelers, shoppers, and D.C. natives in all.”
