In addition to the great neighborhoods recommended by bi_t1, don't miss River Oaks and Tanglewood, two of our highest-end neighborhoods. Both are close-in, filled with beautiful homes, and close to all sorts of shopping.

Further out, you definitely should see Sugar Land and The Woodlands. You'll find both chain and non-chain shops and restaurants in both these areas.

Old town Spring is fun for a couple of hours of seeing quirky shops and a couple of fun places to eat.

Another for Old Town Spring and also Tomball and Humble for something very different than the normal shopping experience. Mostly unique one of a kind pieces and antiques. Add the Antique Pavilion on Westheimer if you are into antiques.

High end would be Galleria or Highland Village but nothing really unique.
