    Ive been to Vegas more than I can count, but this summer im taking two newbies. What do u see as a must for the first timer. I think the classic Fremont as well as the over the top City Center. But I also think that u need to leave something for the next time as well. So evertone what are the musts....

    For an absolute first timer:
    1.) drive up and down the strip at night (From Mandalay Bay to Circus Circus)
    2.) walk up and down Fremont Street at night
    3.) go to the top of Stratosphere at dusk to watch the sunset over the valley
    4.) watch the bellagio fountains from the top of the Eifel Tower (two birds with one stone)
    5.) ride the monorail from Sahara to MGM.

    There's a ton more, but this will get you started with a broad stroke.

    If you have a car and some time go to Red Rock Canyon for a couple of hours.

    Check out the Linq shops, along with Food & Drink culminating riding the High Roller.

    Take a pic/video of the Welcome to Vegas sign.

    Take a tour of Bellagio art gallery as well as the seasonal gardens.

    Hard Rock Cafe/Casino.

    Have lunch at Cabo Wabo and watch out over LV BLVD, you will see some amazing sights.

    Watch Sunset and have a few drinks from MIX LOUNGE, they do a champagne toast at sunset.

    I have taken 9 new people over the last four years and those two are home runs for everyone. Its just simply things, but gives a nice taste of LV.

    - Bellagio fountain show(s) a must, for sure (plus pit stop to the glass ceiling and conservatory)
    - Walk around the "themed" hotels: Venetian, Caesar's, NYNY, Luxor, Paris
    - Fremont Street Experience
    - See a show
    - Eat at a buffet
