This looks fab. How can I find the Fred Harvey Room? I walk through Union Station every weekday and have no idea where it is!
The Fred Harvey Room is located on the west side of Union Station near the Old Ticketing Hall. If you enter through the Alameda Street entrance, you’ll see an info booth in front (the volunteers there are also super friendly and knowledgeable) and to your right are doors leading out to the courtyard…and the Fred Harvey Room!
