Union Station is although not the travel hub it once was, this station is a must-see for those interested in Chicago architecture. The grand hall is breathtaking with giant Roman columns sweeping up to the ceiling, as statues glare down upon the rows of benches and the busy commuters below. Union Station is currently home to both Amtrak and the Metra commuter trains. The Amtraks head all over the country, while the Metra lines snake throughout the suburbs to such places as Brookfield Zoo
, the Chicago Botanic Garden
, Ravinia Park and the riverboat casinos. Timings vary, open according to train schedule.
