National Harbor offers lots of outdoor art you can touch

Pack a picnic and head to National Harbor, Maryland, where you could easily spend several hours going on scavenger hunts, taking selfies with statues of American icons and climbing on “The Awakening,” one of the area’s best-known waterside sculptures.

That’s right. Climbing won’t get you in trouble.

“If you can reach it, you can touch it,” said Deborah Topcik, a spokeswoman for National Harbor, which is next to the Potomac River. “Our interactive-outdoor-art collection is meant to be conversation starters for all ages.”
