Saint Louis Union Station

3) Saint Louis Union Station (must see)

St. Louis Union Station, a National Historic Landmark, was a passenger train terminal in St. Louis, Missouri. Once the world's largest and busiest train station; in the 1940s, it handled 100,000 passengers a day. As airliners became the preferred mode of long-distance travel and railroad passenger services declined in the 1950s and 1960s, the massive station became obsolete and too expensive to maintain for its original purpose. It was converted in the early 1980s into a hotel, shopping center, and entertainment complex. Today, it serves only local rail transit passengers. At its height, the station combined the St. Louis passenger services of 22 railroads, the most of any single terminal in the world.
