There’s Only One Remaining Train Station Like This In All Of Southern California And It’s Magnificent

I was born and raised in sunny Southern California and will never tire of the West Coast, although I spent several years living in Southeast Asia, about as far from California as you can get. Wherever I am in the world, I love straying from the beaten path, experiencing local life, and discovering hidden gems - camera in hand. The beach is my happy place and when I am not there (or writing), you will usually find me baking, watching movies, and cuddling my pugs. I have traveled around the country and around the world, and it never, ever gets old. Being able to combine my passion for travel and my love of writing is nothing short of a dream.
When it comes to historic buildings and destinations, some truly stand out among the rest. The stately Los Angeles Union Station is one such destination. Many who have ridden a California train have passed through, or even stopped at, this historic train station in Southern California. In 1972, Union Station was designated as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, and in 1980, it was put on the National Register of Historic Places. Whether you ride the train or not, this impressive structure is worthy of a visit.
