Supposedly the largest shopping mall in the whole of Texas. Coming from Singapore, I was a little disappointed that the place wasn't as big as I expected it to be. Was surprised that i was not even able to find a single kindle that was in stock to purchase here. The setting and design of the shopping mall wasn't that... More

You'll find all the fancy shops there, apple store, a&f but also louis Vuitton etc. Very nice lego store, big food court not far away from downtown. Worth a visit and a good shopping experience.

Great flagship mall. Lots of high end stores. Skating rink was a bit odd, but cool (no pun intended!) We had a tough time deciding which parking lot to go to. Shops are expensive, but that is what you should expect at a city centre mall.

The Galleria has lots of choices in shopping and food. Shopping has brand names as well as more cost-effective options. There's a food court around the skating rink, and a few individual restaurants on the ground floor.

Every store on the planet just about is here. Restaurants, Hotels, and the Ice Rink are fabulous. traffic can be a beast the best way to get there is to not use Westheimer.
