Opened in L.A.’s Downtown in 1939 and named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, this Amtrak hub is known as the “Last of the Great Railway Stations” built in America. Serving five major Amtrak trains (running to Seattle, Chicago, San Antonio, New Orleans, San Diego and San Luis Obispo), the station also provides service to Amtrak’s long-distance coach line, as well as L.A.’s local Metro Bus and seven lines of the Metro Rail.
From the outside, the beige stucco, red-roof-tiled building looks like many Spanish-style structures found in the city, but the interior is actually a blend of Dutch Colonial Revival, Mission Revival and Streamline Moderne, three of the most popular architectural styles in L.A. The distinctive station has made appearances in several movies over the years, including the noir classic Union Station, To Live & Die in L.A., Speed, The Way We Were, and Batman re-spin The Dark Knight Rises.
