I was hoping to find a more unique shopping experience. In the end it was just like any mall that targets the high end shopper, same stores, same motifs. A re-fresh is due.

You'll have drive several times around the parking lot to find a space because valet parking took most of the 1st floor. Stores are Too pricely for the average household unless you want your kids to ice skate or just window shopping & see the rich shops.

Had checked out of hotel and had a few hours to kill before boarding flight. Managed to spend about 3 hours here walking and checking out sales. Garage parking was nice, especially since it was raining. No complaints.

There was a lot of hype I read on line about this place. It's a typical comercial centre. I'd say if shopping is your thing you'll enjoy it, and it has lots of the same shops that every comercial centre has. The food court was ok, restaurants were fine, no entertainment places I could find. It was also being remodeled... More

I can't think of a better way to go midday shopping, than to visit the Galleria. I remember rolling the halls with babies in strollers...now I'm just looking for that perfect, outfit, shoe, purse, accessory. There are so many stores to choose from. Your everyday department stores like Macy's and Dillards or Lord & Taylor. My favorites include Saks and... More

Great shopping. Lots of stores ranging from very expensive, high end to moderately priced. A good amount of restaurants and an ice skating rink!

There is a a central ice skating rink which is open for public use. Otherwise there is particular of note. Food for mall this large is particularly lacking, Traffic in this area is very bad at all times.

This site is nearly impossible to get to without tolerating congested traffic and rude drivers at over-crowded stop lights. After arriving, expect to spend another 20-30 minutes looking for a place to park. Security was not apparent the last time I went there. Their ice-skating rink is unique, I have to admit. I would not have tolerated the access travails... More
