If I can't actually go anywhere at the moment, I can at least dream of travel. Union Station in Los Angeles encourages those dreams. Whether you're taking an Amtrak train up along the Pacific Coast, taking the metro to Hollywood, or just having a fun outing, you can imagine taking off for a new destination.
In addition, Union Station is simply beautiful. Its huge main hall has an elegance that harks back to the days when train travel could be a luxury and fashionably dressed men and women loaded up their trunks and had a fancy pre-trip dinner served on white tablecloths.
"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."
