Remember the Watergate scandal that brought down US president Richard Nixon? If you go to Washington DC, do not forget to visit Watergate. It still exists. The Watergate is the name of a complex that includes a hotel, three luxury apartment buildings, two offices and a shopping complex. In 1972, Nixon authorised a series of burglaries and surveillance operations. One such burglary took place at the Watergate complex. Unfortunately for Nixon, the alert action of a security guard disrupted the break-in, scandalised him for life and cost him the presidency. Today, Watergate is a tourist attraction and some of its famous residents include senator Bob Dole, supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and for a brief period, Monica Lewinsky.
