A shopping mall of massive proportions, Houston’s Galleria Mall is a nationally- known landmark for store browsing and high- end purchases. Its stores are many and it’s the type of place you can visit several times and still find something new and unique. The Galleria Mall is big, and this is the main reason it enjoys so much recognition. It... More

This mall is so large it overwhelmed my teenage daughter and her friend with shopping options. I was surprised by the look on their faces. They asked if we could return to the mall in Sugar Land to shop. Enjoyed watching people ice skating by the food court. The door court choices also match the choices in shopping, plenty to... More

What a huge mall it is! Galleria is the best mall in Houston. Everything that can be found in malls you can find there. Every store you can think, exists there. We had enjoyed two restaurants: Rain Forest and Cheesecake Factory. Both of them were very nice, but it was my first experience in Rain Forest. Different from everything I... More

This should be considered a reference for shopping malls, due to the extensive areas of multiple interests that will offer you the best, the newest, exclusive or simple unique things you'll love. Get prepaired for having lots of things and experiences to buy!

The Galleria shopping mall down-town Houston is part of the modern history of the city. You "must" have been there if you ever visit the city! It has a wide selection of shops, but mostly within clothing, shoes and accessories, which is typical of most modern malls. Most big brands are present and Galleria is not the place for bargains....

The Galleria has good restaurants (I tried the fish restaurant and it was great) and a good number of varied shops. However if one is used to Asian malls, the Galleria would be considered "average" both in terms of size and variety.

This mall was enormous. It has three floors and some great dinning options. It will take a good day if you just walk through each store and purchase nothing. This mall includes several designer stores including Prada and Louis Vuttion. I was in town for three nights and four days and three of the four days I spent the evening... More
