This mall is enormous, and while there is plenty to see, it's so spread out and is such a crazy quilt of super-high-end retail on down to bargain basement that I'm not sure what to make of it. The "Neiman-Marcus neighborhood" has been carefully set apart from the rest of the mall. The mall's 1970's-era design means that getting from one level to the next means a long walk. The major department stores seem to be well run and have a great selection (Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman-Marcus, Dillard's).

The once inspiring Galleria is hidden by ugly and confusing garages that are hard to navigate and block pedestrians from accessing the
mall. To be fair we went on a Monday mid-morning. The place was dead. No one there.

Great range of upmarket shops and stores. Eatery too on the ground floor was great. An ice skating rink is built in December. Enjoy.

We enjoyed our day at the Galleria watching the children learning to ice skate and visiting the stores out of our price range as well as those were we were able to find a good deal. We ended the day with a delightful meal in the Cheese Cake Factory. Something for everyone in this beautiful mall!
