National Harbor....Experience DC Waterfront
National Harbor has so many things to offer attendees of the National Leadership Forum.  From shopping, dining, to sightseeing, it is a one stop experience that will leave you wanting to return for years to come.  Whether you are a fine diner or a frugal one, the Harbor has plenty of options for you to choose from and many new choices since last year.  Same can be said for their retail opportunities.  Please be sure to take some time during your visit to explore the area while in town….of course not while you are supposed to be in your sessions!!!
