CADCA’s National Leadership Forum – Your Ticket to National Harbor Happenings

CADCA’s 27th Annual National Leadership Forum & SAMHSA’s 13th Prevention Day is located at the beautiful National Harbor, just a stone’s throw away from the nation’s capital. Whether you’re planning on arriving early, staying a few days, or just taking in the sights in your spare time, there is plenty to do at the National Harbor!

The National Leadership Forum, February 6 – 9, 2017, will take place at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center with its own unique attractions. The Gaylord is located right on the Potomac River, featuring a 19-story high glass atrium with indoor gardens, award-winning restaurants and other amenities.

A must-see? The Capital Wheel, a 180-foot Ferris wheel on the Potomac River waterfront. From the top, you can see the National Cathedral, Washington Monument, Masonic Temple, City of Alexandria, Prince George’s County and more.

While you’re on the Waterfront, enjoy top-of-the-line dining by celebrity chefs, such as Jose Andres and the Voltaggio brothers. Stroll down to the National Harbor Marina and keep your eyes open for Art on the Harbor, located all around the area. The recently opened MGM National Harbor offers 12 different restaurants and a 3,000 seat theater.

Ready to shop? Stop by the Tanger Outlets with its 160-plus stores, including name brands like Calvin Klein, IZOD, Tommy Hilfiger, Brooks Brothers Factory Store and many more.
