The Galleria is a super sized mall. All in doors with just about every regular and/or high end store end you can think of. Food court and The Cheesecake Factory is attached. Not the most accessible for families with kids due to extreme traffic and parking related complications. You would be much better off at Memorial City Mall with kids or strollers. The Galleria is an interesting destination for out of towners if you have extra time and patience. It is not a run in and grab it type of situation.

Be prepared to walk! Great eateries and lots of fun inside mall. This is a very high end mall. You can tell when someone is famous in town they shut the entire mall down!

Great place to shop or take any visitors of Houston. The Galleria has affordable retail as well as up scale shops. There are plenty of choices as well as ample parking spaces. The only small downfall would be that the area around the Galleria does build with traffic depending on the time of day.

Pros:
Big mall. You can pretty much find anything you need. Love the indoor parking especially rain in Houston all the time.

Cons:
Too big. Even you know where you need to go. It takes time to park and walk to the store. It took me 30 min just to get to Victoria secret on a busy day.
Traffic is pretty much always bad to get there.
