I had to exit the metro at Union Station to catch a bus. Having spent the day at the National Mall, where food options are virtually non-existent, I was so very hungry. The food choices offered at Union Station are submarine sandwiches, burgers, Chinese, and Japanese. Getting a steak dinner in a sit-down restaurant was not viable. I had to eat Chinese in the food court. And, finding a table with chairs at the food court was another unrealistic expectation.
This is NOT a place for sightseeing, unless you're into beggars. I was approached for money in the food court, while I was attempting a well-deserved chow down. I should have known that, since I had the good fortune of getting both a chair and table, something like this would happen.
There are some mall-type stores at Union Station. I wouldn't feel safe carrying shopping bags, and I definitely wouldn't wander around Union Station solo. I did not and would not shop here.
If you're into train stations, Union Station might be appealing. But, please don't confuse Union Station with a shopping mall, an eatery, or a safe place to visit.
