Union Station: Find Parking For The Fun
Most Chicagoans recognize historic Union Station as the only intercity rail terminal in the area, connecting major U.S. cities from coast to coast. Less, however, are aware of Union Station’s potential as an events center.
Boasting an extensive calendar, Union Station serves as a venue for swanky gatherings like wine tastings and arts fairs, but has also hosted technology and culinary expos and high-profile concerts. Private events can be booked too, such as weddings and graduations. Regardless of what you’re doing, Union Station’s Great Hall provides guests with a dramatic backdrop.
Despite its status as a giant transportation hub and a lavish events venue, access to Union Station has been problematic. The terminal has been hammered for its parking, with complaints ranging from price, service and location.
