Great eateries at Union Station....just taking a stroll through the shopping mall was a wonderful experience. There are lots of great boutique shops! The atmosphere is a place where you feel comfortable sitting and taking in the views as well.

This is a terrible disgrace. There are no police present while vagrants are loitering, littering and smoking and bothering visitors.

For security reasons, there are no storage lockers at Union Station. There is a checked baggage room, which charges a daily fee -- I don't know how much. I believe that all items to be left there are x-rayed before storage
