Yeah it can be considered on but most people look at shopping districts to be street shopping, like rodeo dr newburry st. chicagos mile. etc those are shopping districts where you dont have to go in a mall to shop

The Galleria is a mall. Uptown Houston is like the shopping district. It just needs to get more walkable.

I actually can do the heat though. I prefer the cold weather but wouldn't mind heat. Now Phoenix heat? NAH.

My vote goes to Houston because a lot of impressive designer stores have closed in Dallas including Prada. Dallas' only upscale malls would be Highland Park and Northpark. Dallas Galleria has a lot of unleased retail space and has lost big name retailers that have relocated inside of Northpark. Dallas Victory was very promising when it first open but its a total joke now, Nove and N9ne restaurants have closed. Northpark is the only place worth shopping at in Dallas, Highland Park has very limited parking. Houston tends to get designer stores before Dallas because Houston has more international visitors (yes its very true). Houston has very rare stores such as Lenny e Cia, Churchs, and Donald J Pliner. I personally like Saks Fifth Avenue in Houston its very impressive and huge compared to others I've been to. Both cities have stores that the other does not. Dallas lacks a district like Uptown in Houston.

Dallas definately wins this one. Even my father who hates the hell out of Dallas and lives in Houston says that Dallas has the best shopping in the South outside Miami. He brings his trophy wife up here to shop every 2 months or so.

Dallas has impressive designer stores closed and Houston doesn't? What about Luca Luca and Dolce & Gabbana?

Houston tends to get designer stores BEFORE Dallas? We got the first Chanel, Hugo Boss, Escada, St. John, Tod's, Valentino, Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Harry Winston, Jimmy Choo, Hermes, Tory Burch and among others.

Houston has "rare" stores? Dallas has Texas' only Herve Leger, Henri Bendel, Carolina Herrera, Loro Piana, Rugby from Ralph Lauren, Scoop, VINCE, Judith Ripka, Intermix, 7 for all Mankind, Diesel and one of the only two Beretta Gallery stores in the entire country out of 7 stores in the world.

Houston has only one Neiman, one Saks, one Nordstrom. Dallas has several Neimans, two Nordstroms, two Saks, and Texas' only Barneys New York.

I don't know what Uptown Houston district you're talking about but Dallas Art District is one of the best in the world and that beats out everything Houston Uptown has. Get your head straight.

Did you just seriously compare Dallas Art District to Uptown Houston???? Two different things.

Also nothing in Dallas compares to Houston's Uptown District you mean:

Uptown Houston and Arts District Dallas are two different animals. But one cannot blame boutique closures such as Prada on Dallas. The Prada boutique stores across the country have been struggling for quite some time now and there were others closings besides Dallas. Perhaps when it regains some more strength it will return to the Dallas market. They would be silly not too. Its a very strong shopping market.

Dallas is the home of Neiman-Marcus - Mr. Stanley lived just over a block from me in Lakewood.

End of argument.
