  Montgomery's Historic Union Station
by Stephen-KarenConn

This is the best spot from which to begin any tour of Montgomery, especially for first time visitors. The splendidly preserved train station is the centerpiece of the city's riverfront, and home to the Montgomery Area Visitor Center.

Completed in 1898, the three-story building and magnificent train shed reflect the way travel was conducted in the 19th and early 20th centuries. They offer a wide variety of services for visitors from informational videos of the region, museum-type exhibits, a gift shop and a professional staff that demonstrate what southern hospitality is all about. Open daily; free admission.

Address: 300 Water Street, Montgomery, AL 36104
