Xi'an tourist itineraries were organised in the 4 cardinal directions:
East-
Banpo Museum, First Emperor Mausoleum, Terracotta Army Museum, Huaqing Pool, Mt Li, Lintong Museum, Mt Hua /Huashan
West-
Xianyang Museum, Mao Mausoleum, Zhao Mausoleum, Tomb of Huo Qubing, Concubine Yang, Famen Temple
South-
Dumu Shrine, Mt Cuihua, Mt Taibai etc
North-
Yan'an, Huangdi Mausoleum, Sima Qian Shrine, Yellow River Bottleneck etc
City-
City Wall, Shaanxi Historical Museum, Steele Forest Museum, Big and Small Goose Pagodas, Muslim Quarter, Drum and Clock Towers

Each route will easily take one day. Mt Hua deserves a night. Unless you are keen on historical sites and museums in the above list, my efforts are wasted on you.

I correct myself. It's Huashan, not Huangshan. Always mixed up these two.

I find the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda a waste of time. The fountain/light show too.

Yes, other than the historical significance- rarely do structures date over 1000 years back. Fountain/light shows are rarely worth the while too.
