Every weekday in August, Reston Now will be offering suggestions for a Summer Bucket List — things to do, places to check out and activities to try in and around Reston before summer’s end.

Obviously, different ideas will appeal to different residents in different age groups. But we are open for ideas. If you have any “must-dos” of summer (even better: with a photo of you/your family participating in said event), email us at [email protected] and we will consider it.

Reston Summer Bucket List No. 17: Find Reston’s Hidden Art

We are turning over today’s bucket list item to our Reston-based friends at Fun in Fairfax VA, a local blog that has great ideas for area field trips for all ages.

Fun in Fairfax VA recently took a stroll to find some of Reston’s finest — but sometimes hard to find — public art.

Some places to check out: the kid-designed mosaic at Hunters Woods Elementary School and the Glade Underpass; the inviting and user-friendly Swing near the North Shore underpass; Lake Anne’s Sunboat; and, finally, the piece of the Berlin Wall that lives outside a Reston office building.

To read more art walk suggestions, visit Fun in Fairfax VA.
