Union Station is glorious. It has 2 large halls that are parallel to each other and the second one consists of three levels, which has shops, restaurants, movie complex and a food hall. We bought tickets on a Hop On Hop Off Tour- Old Town Trolley and had a while to wait for departure so we looked for a place to eat.
We had breakfast at Johnny Rockets (not a patch on the Castle Hill one) and planned our day.
After a great day sightseeing we got off the Trolley at Union Station and purchased our tickets to go back to Fredericks burg. We followed the sign to get the correct platform and a really nice man somehow figured out that the train we wanted was the VRE and told us that the sign was misleading and we needed a different track and that he travelled on the VRE also. They had absolutely no seating in the hall above the platform and after standing around for 15 minutes we went to the platform and there are no seats there either. We were happy to see the train 25 minutes later to be able to board and sit finally.
A great day was had by both of us but I do think I have worn Grant out as we are having a slower day today........at this stage it is an unknown as to what may unfold..
Here is a short clip I took in DC. I had tried to upload one in a previous Blog but had had no luck.....enjoy..
