1 Day/Night to myself in Vegas... what should I do?

The parents bought me a plane ticket (United, yay!) out there so I can drive them back to Michigan. They will be driving to Vegas. On the 2nd day I'll be heading to Death Valley, on the 3rd, 4th, 5th the parents will be there. Plus, I will be spending some time at V.O.R.E.

1) What to do on a limited budget to enjoy my 1 day of freedom? Eat at a breastaraunt? Go to Spearmint Rhino? Shelby America tour? Atomic Testing Museum? Neon sign museum? I was last there in 2007 and saw Freemont and most of the strip. Did not go off strip, so I missed Hard Rock, Planet Hollywood, and Rio. Aria, City Center, and Cosmopolitan did not exist yet. Are they worth it; should I check them out?

2) Anything to not miss in Death Valley?

3) Red Rocks or Valley of Fire?

4) What should I take the parents to? (Will see the dam on the way to the Grand Canyon)

Any other advice?

Check out the "How not to get sheened in vegas" thread.  Valley of fire was amazing just make sure you bring water and a change of socks since there is  alot of sand.

Groupon or similar for a gun range package, most will pick you up as well. I don't use guns often so it was intense.  Best $400 I ever spent in Vegas was renting an Elise 10 years ago and romping around Lake Mead Park, Henderson and down to the damn dam.

Seems like there must be a story behind that...

My last visit I rented an Elise from Enterprise. Best $113/day car I could have had except for the luggage capacity. Didn't even occur to me to think of that.  Took it to the dam, which I recommend to everyone. Seeing the dam on Imax doesn't even give you the sense of enormity you get from standing there.
