    Where could I start? Caesar's Palace, NewYork, New York, Circus Circus? Can't see it all in one day. The Vegas Strip, the Fremont Experience. And everywhere is good food! Just north of Vegas is the infamous Area 51, and no matter where you go...gambling. Stay out of the hoods, though...just to be on the safeside.

    Everything honestly. take a walk down the strip and all the casinos are different. try not to spend your money gambling, as almost everything in Vegas takes money. there are free shows, so check the tourist books. but if you were going on a budget like me and my wife did, try not to gamble too much. you will be having a lot of fun doing everything else that you wont realize how much you have actually saved.

    I grew up in Vegas and it's a great place :-) . Of course the obvious answer to your question is the strip. The strip is just one road (Las Vegas Blvd) and its home to all the luxury casinos and entertainment Vegas is famous for. You can also head to downtown Las Vegas which is about 5 miles from the Strip. Downtown offers an unique view of Vegas. It is the original strip. The best attraction in the downtown area is the Fremont Street Experience. It's a 1500 ft in length canopy LCD screen. In fact, Fremont street now has a zip line. If you are into nature there is a beautiful area 15-20 miles outside of Vegas called Red Rock Canyon. It provides beautiful views of the Las Vegas valley along with unusual desert landscape. It was one of my favorite places. Another site to see is the Hoover Dam. It's right outside Vegas as well and is spectacular. Many field trips were taken there when I was younger. I also suggest looking into staying in neighborhood casinos just right outside the strip. They typically are cheaper (rooms, drinks, etc)  and offer a relief from the madness that is the strip. One that I know is very nice is called the Orleans..... Have a great time !!
