I'm not trying to instigate, just an honest question, but do Houston and Dallas have "Rodeo Drive" style boutique stores? If so, what is the name(s) of the street they are on or neighborhood(s)?

It doesn't. Houston's just got what Houston needs for shopping. Honestly, I have seen little care from the city to be more of a shoppers paradise, normally people in Houston talk about improving so many other things, I have never heard about shopping.

Which is why I don't mind giving credit to Dallas. If you're in the top 10, you deserve mad props for getting there. We live in the most competitive country for this, because we have cities from the West to the East, hundreds of cities.

Question: What can I get in one city that I can't in the other? Regardless of how many stores there are to get it from. IMO shopping is about what I can get, not necessarily where I can get it.

I think this parking lot situation at Highland Park Village is being exaggerated. Yes I agree there should just be one row of parking in front of the sidwalk and perhaps greenspace in the middle but there really is no room to place any parking and the parking lot isn't that big. Its not like a shopping center youd see a wal mart in with a huge parking lot. Theres just a few rows. Its still an intimate unique shopping experience.

Yes the new section in Northpark is great but it makes the original section feel old and looks very dirty. Only the new section is two storeys and the rest is only one, that's just weird.
