Its spelled Los Angeles, not Angelas.

I would go with L.A. from that list. All of the cities have their great shopping, but I think the shopping experience is the most varied in L.A. You have super expensive places like Rodeo Drive, traditional shopping malls, places like the Grove or Americana, beach side shopping, urban village shopping, and great discount shopping at places like the Fashion District in downtown. Its a real mix of different shopping experiences and everything from stuff only the very rich can afford to bargain hunters delight.

Houston has more discounters (Marshalls, TJ Maxx types) than any major city I have ever been in. Lots of space there, so land for the franchise retail stores is cheap = lots of retailers that are discounters.

My vote goes to Dallas. If you've ever been there, you'll eventually notice the metro is one large collection of strip malls, shopping centers, big box stores, and chain restaurants.

LA would be the shopping capital in theory, as its metro is fairly similar, and has perfected the shopping culture. However, it is rather expensive to live out here, and would believe that it's hard for the average person to just randomly shop for no reason. I could be wrong, though.

I think the affordability of Texas allows even the average person to shop regularly and splurge on possessions they don't need.

Um is this a joke? Anyway Los Angeles because it has a very big shopping district in downtown L.A. and high end fashion in the Hollywood/beverly Hills area.
