Sightseeing

Good connection for Oak Lawn & Oak Cliff w/nice views of downtown. There's a pedestrian bridge running parallel to it, and a bunch of (overpriced & mostly disappointing) restaurants in nearby Trinity Groves. Maybe just have a drink here and go to dinner somewhere else. Nice, long bike/jog trails along the Trinity.
