DC's main spot for trains, metro, buses and taxis
50 Massachusetts Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002
If you hop an Amtrak train anywhere in the USA and stay on board long enough, you'll pass through Union Station.
Union Station Plaza was opened in 1908 (replacing a train depot that was originally stationed at the National Mall), but by the 1970s became a closed up derelict on the edges of a fairly rough neighborhood (though certainly not the roughest in DC), but beginning in 1983 renovations (with a $160 million building budget) and accompanying the development of the local area, transformed the venerable train station into a bustling shopping, transportation and tourist center.
