#5 of 16 in Shopping in Saint Louis
Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
Admire the architecture, do some shopping, and relax over a tasty meal at St. Louis Union Station, once the largest and busiest train station in the world. In the first half of the 20th century, the station served close to 100,000 passengers a day, but with the advance of air travel, it quickly fell into decline. Its transformation into a hotel and a shopping mall is a great example of successful urban redevelopment. While browsing the shops that offer everything from sports equipment to jewelry, you can enjoy the station's perfectly maintained Romanesque architecture. The station is well-connected with the rest of the city by public transportation, and parking is plentiful.
