Nice mall, lots of stores to shop and some great displays. Great ice skating on lower ground floor. Plenty to do but some better deals to be found out of the center.

there were some great places to shop that you would expect at a typical mall, but they also had a huge section devoted to the luxury brands (Louis V, Cartier, Hermes) if that's your thing.
A few good eating options outside of a food court, and of course the seasonal roller/ice skating rink. Good way to kill a few hours, and a few bucks.

I have been coming here for about 10 years. I love this place, it brings back so many memories. The mall is HUGE so bring comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk. They have a cheesecake factory there in the second floor, which I love to eat at every time I go there.

One thing to have in mind that the Galleria has a lot of high end stores. But it also has all the normal stores you'd find at your local mall.

Love everything about this place.... The only downside, and my only complaint is TRAFFIC. Probably the worst thing about living in Houston is the traffic that starts around 5 and congests every freeway. One time I left the Galleria at around 5 and got home around 8:30 because of the traffic, and I live about 40 minutes away.

Best mall ever. Been here a lot of times and this is a mall that you can surely find everything you need. The ice rink is great for entertainment.

The Galleria is an odd place. It has many very high end stores and many teenager ridden stores and they're all sort of mushed into one massive and difficult to navigate building. A general rule, the upper level is for the younger crowd, the middle level is higher end, the lower level is food. Apple store is on the top level in the middle.

Parking is a monster. I have literally given up and valeted before. To avoid this either come during the day on a weekday, or if not possible arrive before noon on the weekend. You'll be able to park and navigate the stores without too much insanity. Good luck!
