Arriving in Vegas in the afternoon. Want to do 2 nights stay - but not necessarily on the strip (we have a 9 yr old). Plan to drive to Hoover Dam the next day - might do the whole big tour or not - haven't decided yet. For the 2 nights we are there we just want to shop around, swim, and eat. Nothing too terribly fancy as my son is a picky eater. Should we stay in Vegas or outside like at Lowes Lake Las Vegas? We'll have a car so driving is not an issue. If I stay at Lowes Las Vegas will I find a McDonald's close by if we need one (not for me - the 9 yr old)?
