Your Job: Time Travel Host

What if you could use time travel to host any person from the past for one day?

Imagine you are part of a secret program that uses time travel to bring people from the past to the (current) present for only 12 hours. Your job is to show them interesting things/places and gauge their reactions.

Who would you time-travel host, and what/where would you show them?

We can also assume for this thought experiment that the person will have no recollection of their trip after they have been returned to their time.

Example: Would you show a young Steve Jobs an iPhone?
