Question of the week: How important is vacation dining?

I’m writing this post from Ft. Walton Beach, Fla., where I’ve come for a quick beach vacash. The picture you see here is me last night at High Tide, a fabulous oyster bar just up the street from our hotel. This is me having oysters on the halfshell for the first time. Loved ‘em.

The question of the week: When you go on vacation, how important is dining out and choosing restaurants in your plans? Do you, like me, consider dining out one of your main vacation activies? Or do you just try to squeeze eating in in between other things?

Answer in the questions below. I’m off for another round at the oyster bar.
