WASHINGTON – The sounds of suitcases rolling along the platform and the chatter of people talking make up some of the sounds that fill Union Station.
Passengers move swiftly so that they won’t miss their trains, while tourists take in the Roman-style architecture.
Union Station is the busiest transportation hub in the city. More than 90,000 people travel through it daily, and it hosts more than 100 small boutiques.
People of many origins make up the visitors – either cruising the station or dining in its 35 eateries that serve a range of meals that range from American to international cuisine.
