Love the history here and it's great that it's still being used for trains. I've gone to Miami a couple of times and it's a good starting point.

I will start by saying as a historical structure I loved the details of the inside and outside of this station. As you sit inside on the wooden benches, you feel as though as you are transported back to the 30s or the 40s. Historical...More
