Union Station is much more than a place to catch a bus or the train, as any native Washingtonian can tell you. A great place to meet for a beer or an espresso, with an assortment of cafe's, restaurants and specialty shopping set against the back drop of architect Daniel Burnham's monumental splendor, circa 1907.
