Union Station Denver

[Categories: Photography, Travel, Travel Photography, Photography 101 Forever]

This was not a photography expedition.  Photos were taken with a Canon ELPH100HS and enhanced for brightness in iPhoto.

Though we visit downtown from time to time m'lady and I hadn't been to Union Station in over a decade.

The Great Hall:

Some people in the Great Hall actually appear to be waiting for a train.

What others wait for I’m not sure.

The recently refurbished station has many fine new restaurants that attract downtown employees and tourists alike.  There is a boutique hotel (The Crawford) now there also.

The Denver Millennium Bridge, in a style I’ve seen many places in Europe for over 20 years, is next to the station:

Denver is not a cow-town anymore.

  1. Great pictures! I had a very brief stint in Denver- a whopping 48hrs for work- but I will say it left me wanting to see more! 🙂

    Lovely photos and great building – so clean and bright. Sadly, our trains don’t really work here and our station is a bit dilapidated compared to this one. I love the parquet flooring in one of your photos –

    Thanks Frankie. Trains are well beyond their peak era here in the U.S. but I hope they last awhile longer.

  5. Wonderful pictures, I really enjoyed looking through them 🙂
