It’s the forty-seventh anniversary of the Watergate break-in (June 17, 1972) which took place right here in Washington, DC and continues to make headlines.
And remember the great movie “All The President’s Men” (nominated for 8 Academy Awards - winning 4) with Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman as Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post?
Let’s take a guided walking tour to see some of the actual sites associated with the Watergate break-in and learn more about the book and film "All The President's Men."
While all large cities have museums, art galleries and sports teams - Washington, DC is unique in that you can see the exact places where so many important events in our nation's history took place. Watergate is a perfect example. It was the biggest political scandal in American history, and the subsequent book and film "All The President's Men" highlights one of the greatest detective stories in journalistic history. Come see for yourself where it all took place - right here in Washington, DC - on our "Watergate Break-In / All The President's Men" guided walking tour!
