The Galleria Westheimer: "Houston" Top 5 Page for this destination Texas Shopping Tip by keeweechic

Texas Shopping: 18 reviews and 21 photos


The Galleria Westheimer has got to be Houston’s best shopping mall or at very least, the most well known. The mall is set beneath large glass atriums and has over 300 shops and restaurants with many designer brands featured. There is an ice skating rink on the bottom which can best be viewed from the upper levels. Be careful of taking photos here – if the security guard sees you he will ask if you have a permit. There are no signs up to tell you that you can’t but fortunately I had my photos already. If you do want to do it legally, you need to go to the managers office and ask for a permit.
