This is a low key outing. Fun to go over the River, We had lunch at a cute restaurant just on left as you exit the station. Then took the return trip. It was a beautiful day and lovely outing.

If you visit Nizhny, make sure to also take the cable car to the hidden gem urban district of Bor. Well worth the 100 Rub Great views along the way. Easiest way to cross the Volga river.
