Washington DC Landmarks and Attractions

Union Station, Washington's main rail terminal, was designed to act as a monumental gateway to the nation's capital city and is located conveniently close to the US Capitol Building, the National Mall and other attractions such as the National Gallery of Art. Since extensive renovation in the 1980s, the Union Station building now houses cafes, restaurants, stores and a cinema complex. Points of interest within Union Station include the carefully restored main waiting room, a 96 foot chamber with gold-leaf ceiling, that is now used for Balls and other festive events and the Presidential waiting room in the East hall. Just outside union station are the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building and National Postal Museum.
