My 21 year old daughter and I will be arriving in Vegas Thanksgiving day about 5 pm on Highway 15, staying overnight, and leaving the next morning about 8 am. I was wondering if it would be possible to get a hotel-casino place to stay right off of 15, and from there grab the rail or shuttle(rather not drive)to downtown to a restaurant and to watch the free entertainment early that evening and return to our hotel for the rest of the evening to enjoy the sights and sounds of Vegas. We won't do any serious gambling, if any. Do we have enough time to see both areas, or is that biting off more than we can chew? As for restaurant prices $10-20, what may be some we shouldn't miss? We'll have dinner on the 25th and breakfast the 26th before leaving for Denver. We're open to any suggestions for our 15 hours. Like any food except mexican.
