Mpls. is the home of malls. We have the first, the largest, and as far as I know, the most. We even plopped a couple downtown in cartoonish rendition of an Victorian Arcade. I apologize to the rest of America from the bottom of my heart. Secondly, if you get subjective with the term "mall" you could add Country Club Plaza in KCMO. It's a 1920 developer's rendition of Seville. It's actually like a "lifestyle" center, expect authentic, urban and pleasant to be in.

Another vote for King of Prussia (colloquially referred to as "KOP") as one of the nation's top malls. It IS the largest mall on the East Coast and it is ranked third largest based on overall area (ranked higher based on leasable retail space).

There is nothing wrong with shopping malls. Some of us live in places where it's too hot for a downtown street shopping center to thrive. We have that, but it doesn't attract as much attention as the Galleria in Uptown. So when it's blazing outside or raining out, you can get your air conditioned shop on.

Yeah, indoor malls are fine. Indoor malls and downtown/open air shopping are not mutually exclusive. Tampa and Orlando have fine examples of both.

I'd that my three favorites would have to be the Galleria in Dallas, the Galleria in Houston, and Scottsdale Fashion Square. All offer a great variety of mid to high-end clothing and each has a very attractive layout. Scottsdale Fashion Square also has a GREAT restaurant located near the entrance but I can't for the life of me remember the name!

What an excuse. New York and Chicago get hot and humid. When I lived in D.C. summers were hot and humid, New Orleans is hot and humid. All have great downtown or Georgetown shopping. Houston is not blazing year around. The Galleria is quite nice but Houston needs somewhere else to shop when its not summer. Thank goodness Houston Pavilions is coming.
