Denver has a very active Downtown. All cities copy one another to get what the other cities have.

Mpope409 you never stated what you think should be done if not HP. I think its great. DT Houston has been doing great things over the past few years and this will definately be the start of dt retail which I think will eventually spread beyond HP. Houstonians need to get out of the tunnels and malls and hit the streets. Maybe Macy's will renovate its dt Houston store which is one of the worse dt dept. stores I ever set foot in.

Thanks to pwright, Guerilla, and Spade, I can honestly say that I'm slowly beginning to look at Houston Pavilions in a more positive light. I'm guessing that it could help the downtown scene, somewhat. Not that I'll ever go in there, but I might take a quick drive past it upon its completion.

Sorry to interrupt, but let's stay on topic. The best malls in the country. I didn't read the topics, just looked at the pictures, so I apologize if I'm accusing you guys of something that I shouldn't be.

I'm suprised Woodfield or Old Orchard (both in the Chicagoland area) haven't come up too much. I like them both.

Anyways, I DO want to go to the Somerset Collection, MOA, and Short Hills in NJ (I think that's what it's called), as well as the King of Prussia.

Any other malls that are interesting, upscale, etc.?

We are still kind off on-topic. The HP is a mall.

The Ala Moana Center in Honolulu, HI. The best mall, IMHO, b/c the amount of flora in the mall. And all the high end shops that I can't afford to shop at!

The Galleria area in Houston. The most upscale shopping center in the South (except for what Miami might have).

I tossed in my mention for Woodfield earlier in this thread.
While I have been to Tysons, I have not been to King of Prussia.
I have family in the Philly area, but have never visited.

I think NorthPark in Dallas would have something to say about that.

I was definetly about to come in here and say that lol. Northpark would give the Galleria a run for it's money. I had the pleasure of going there 5 years ago. Same year as the Galleria. Both impressed me with their high end shopping. But I've only been in 3-4 malls since I dislike them so much. Oh and if you want to call it southern. Tyson's Corner Mall in Northern Virginia could give both those aformentioned malls a run as well.
