Completed in 1939, Los Angeles Union Station is often characterized as the "Last Great Railroad Station." Union Station is an eclectic mixture of mission style and Art Deco architectural motifs. The grand gallery and unused but visible side gallery are impressive. In addition, there are two impressive patio gardens.

A short walk from Union Station is Philippe Restaurant, inventor of the French Dip sandwich.
