If you want the finest products, this is where you will need to go. If you want to see and be seen, this is the place. Tiffany;s, and all the rest of the finest products in Houston this is the place. Underground parking that is convenient, but needs more.

Bring your walking shoes! This enormous mall is a must-see when visiting the Houston, TX area. It has every high-end store imaginable, as well as familiar name-brand stores and small kiosks. There are enough restaurants of all kinds to feed any taste in food and/or beverage. There is an ice-skating rink. There is a huge parking structure. It's great for people-watching. Even during the Thanksgiving week shopping frenzies, it was never really overcrowded, and the people seemed to enjoy the bustling atmosphere and decorations for Christmas which were already in place. There are several hotels attached to the Galleria, and there is a small restaurant attached to the Westin Hotel at the Galleria which has very good food, especially for brunch. i enjoyed eating at the Mexican restaurants, as I can't get this food where I live. Visitors could spend several days exploring the Galleria, and not see it all. Big stores are even bigger in Texas, with multiple floors, and there is a lot of variety in what is available for sale everywhere. I stayed two blocks away from the Galleria, and was able to walk there in about 10 minutes, thus avoiding the parking garage (which does offer valet parking if you wish it). Far above average as far as what is in the mall, places to eat, helpful staff and comfort level. It would be easy to go bankrupt shopping here, but what a way to go!

The Galleria has a wide array of shopping choices for everyone. If you want high-end, you can find it there. If your on more of a budget, bargains can be found there as well. First time visitors will also enjoy the skating rink that is located close to the food court.

The Galleria has every shop you could imagine a mall should have. It does get very busy around the holidays and weekends. There's plenty of free parking but just make sure you remember where you parked since this mall is huge. Food court and restaurants are all located inside the mall for when you get hungry. Also, inside the mall is a big ice
skating rink. Its easy to spend a whole day at the Galleria and do lots of walking.
