|About these ratings|
The Galleria is just a fancy way to say "humongous mall." This gargantuan shopping center sprawls across 2.4 million square feet of space and predominantly contains upscale brands like Hugo Boss, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Michael Kors and Tiffany & Co. If those stores are out of your price range, you will find brands like Forever 21 and Gap here too. Aside from the retail stores, perhaps one of the most extraordinary things about the Galleria is its massive ice skating rink, situated right in its center. If you don't get enough exercise walking, you can always hit the ice.
Recent visitors caution if you plan to do a lot of shopping, anticipate a lot of walking (and wear some comfy shoes). They also say the mall can often get crowded, especially on the weekends.
You can't miss the mall itself, it's located right off Interstate 610 southwest of Memorial Park. The Galleria's hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, visit the mall's official website.
