Traffic is terrible. Had no trouble finding a parking space, but did have trouble finding the car in the massive parking facilities. Everyone should visit once.

The Galleria is a shopping mecca! With everything from very high end boutiques that carry haute couture to dept. stores like Macy's. Whether you're mature or young, you can find what you need in stores from Neiman Marcus to Forever 21.

If you get hungry there are plenty of dining options varying from fast food to fine dining.

The mall was exceptionally big with so many different stores from expensive to average. The indoor ice rink was a very pretty added benefit. I went on a whim with my children and they were very overwhelmed. It was a nice mall, but I think us going around the Christmas shopping season should have been avoided. With us just moving here we wanted to see it as we had heard so much about it. I certainly think its a mall everyone should see and experience.

This is a great mall. Wow. It takes all day to go through it. If you love shopping- this is the place for you! There is a great mix of all price points. There is a lot of high end stores and there is a lot of medium price points.

It's easy to see yet another Mall in the US, but the designers behind Houston's Galleria have made a great effort. Plenty of upscale shops and some great food concessions. Easy to find that a few hours have disappeared!
