Heading to Vegas tomorrow!

My mom's (birth and in-law) are heading to Vegas together tomorrow morning for 4 days. First time in Vegas for both. They are in their 60s and are excited to explore this fun city. What would you suggest they see and do while they are there? (They are on a fairly limited budget)

Search this forum for Las Vegas. Plenty of free entertainment and inexpensive dining there.

I looked for past posts, but there are TONS and TONS and TONS for Vegas. I read through many of them already, but I'm feeling overwhelmed! They leave in the morning and I wanted to send them with a few "don't miss" suggestions.
Please help!

Since they are on a limited budget, check out www.cheapovegas.com. There's plenty of info about free and low-cost attractions. Many casinos also pass out coupon books for 2-for-1 shows, breakfasts, etc.

The reason there are TONS and TONS and TONS for Vegas is that there is a lot to do there. You wouldn't have to read them all - many cover the same thing.

That said, the fodors miniguide is as good a place as any to start. You can find it by clicking destinations up top.

Have they done no reading to know what there is to do in Las Vegas???? I mean, they must have picked it for a reason, right? The things not to miss are all the casinos and hotels on the strip, including some of the free and pay exhibits they have. But those are dependent on interests. I guess for me, the one don't miss thing is the Bellagio fountains, but hopefully they already knew about that if they're leaving tomorrow!

Some would say the art galleries at Bellagio and Venetian are don't miss while others don't like art but would say definitely see Madame Tussaud's at Venetian or the car exhibit at IP. Still others would say they need to see a Cirque show (too late I'm sure) and some would say that Vegas has great rollercoasters.

What do they want to see and do? Maybe that would help people help you. In the meantime, there was a thread entitled something like "top 10 things to do in vegas" or thereabouts. It was a pretty recent thread, so a search of vegas should show it in the first 2 or 3 pages.
