Yeah. We took our kid to Vegas. Stupid, stupid move. But we had talked to other parents who had taken their kids in years past. In the 90s there was an effort to clean things up a bit and make it family friendly but by the time we went and she was almost 9, it had backslid to what you describe. Still, she gets to rant about it pretty frequently and we earned our "Bad Parenting Decision" badge.
I was last in Vegas back in October 2011 and I too was amazed at all of the kids that were being drug around casinos at 12, 1, even 2 in the morning! It was crazy. I can see being around during the day but 2AM in a crowd of people where not everyone is on their best behavior?
I understand it's become a cheap vacation for some... but there's a reason it's called Sin City.
