  • I love the shopping at the Galleria. Parking is always a pain though. Construction in the area is a pain as well. The Galleria has everything you could possibly want.  more »
  • The Galleria is literally a one stop shopping centre for anything big, bold or beautiful that you are looking for. So many designers shops and some for the whole family (Such as the Disney Store). The...  more »

  • Be prepared to drop a bag if you come to this mall it’s mostly high end. This mall is huge tho! It’s got something for everyone whether you’re coming for shopping, food or entertainment. By far one of the most impressive malls I’ve been in and a big wow factor before I moved down to Houston... If you get a chance checkout the indoor ice rink, the Tesla store & some of the restaurants. It’s got one of my NYC favorites Shake Shack on one of the lower levels too!
  • Wow! This mall is amazing! All the great stores, plenty of great food, hotels to stay at attached to the mall. The place is so large, you could forget to leave while visiting Houston. I recommend everyone go and visit the Galleria while in Houston.
  • The GALLERIA MALL is a Houston must see! It has so many stores and 3 levels to shop! I always visit THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY to eat and see a movie! If you are visiting, you can stay at the hotel connected to it! The area surrounding the Galleria is very nice with many places to eat and it is always clean and safe!
  • Absolutely a shoppers dream classy, beautiful upscale shopping. From H&M to Louis V store, Channel u will find what your looking for. Great jewelry shops, tasty food court. It's Everything
  • A huge shopping mall that is one of the top ten biggest malls in America. You can probably spend the whole day here or at least a good few hours. It has a variety of stores from high-end to low price with stores for women, men, and children. You can definitely get your walk on in here because the mall is fairly spread out. Dillard’s is separate from the mall so you will have to cross the street to get to it, which I personally don’t like and would prefer that it was connected. There is an ice skating rink in the food court that is a fun spot to watch people. Food court has a variety of different choices to choose from along with some restaurants placed other than the food court. The mall is also surrounded by plenty of restaurants to choose from. They do a really nice job decorating for Christmas and it is always nice to see the massive tree they put up.
