Absolutely not a "must-see." Sorry, but the Galleria isn't an attraction; it's just a place to spend too much money on stupid clothes from Asian sweatshops.

Houston doesn't have a "must-see" attraction.

No, people who say the Slag-area is a must see probably count MuckDonalds and Starsucks as their top picks as well.

My store is in the Galleria. I avoid going near that mall. Once I was to meet a blind date inside the mall. It was to be the first and only time I ever been inside. Starting from that dark filthy dingy underground parking garage to the over priced stores all patronized by by fake Kim Kkardashian types who are better suited to the Rodeo Drive crowd in Beverly Hills, and getting so lost, I walked out vowing never to return. There is nothing in that mall for me that I can't find in any other in half the time and half he price.

It's an asset but not a must see.

If I wanted to watch beautiful young eastern European women chase after a tall, dorky looking 30 something white guy as if he were the richest man in Texas, I'd have somebody video tape me walking through the Galleria, go home, then watch the video tape on my T.V.
