I'm leaving Saturday for a quick 24 hours in Vegas on my way to LA. I've been close to 20 times (over about 6 years), but will have another person with me that has never been and I'm serving as a tour guide of sorts. I'll admit, since I've been so many times I kind of get into a 'rut' - I know what I like to do and haven't branched out much the last few trips and maybe I've become a little disconnected from what the 'essential' Vegas stops are. My question is, for someone who has never been to Vegas and only has 24 hours there, what would you show them? (I'm talking more hotel/attraction wise, not so much the shows/restaurants) Obviously there's the Bellagio fountains and Mirage volcano and I figure we'll do a stop at the Vegas sign (we're renting a car, so we'll be driving right past it on our way to the strip). But there's a number of other things (Bellagio lobby/conservatory, Eiffel Tower, Venetian canal, Wynn lobby, I'd throw in the lion habitat if it still existed, etc...) so which things would you throw in the must see list?
