Are you planning to spend time in Houston? Whether you are coming for business or pleasure, a short trip or extended stay, The Galleria is the place to be for shopping. This modern, upscale shopping mall has more than 30 million visitors each year.With 2.4 million square feet of space, the mall houses 400 stores of many of the world’s best-known and high-end brands, dining space, and an ice skating rink. The Galleria also has two high-rise hotels, three office towers occupied by businesses from a wide variety of industries, and nearly 14,000 parking spaces. But the Galleria means so much more than just shopping. The surrounding Galleria neighborhood is ideally situated nearby other key areas of Houston, and has increasingly become a desirable area in its own right.
The Galleria is located between two of Houston’s most desirable neighborhoods, River Oaks and Memorial. Staying in the Galleria area means you have quick access to Downtown Houston, which is not only a vital business district, but also offers many cultural attractions such as the Theater District and a vibrant nightlife scene. The Galleria is a short ride from the center of the Energy Corridor, which for those working in the industry is the heart of the de facto Energy Capital of the world, and home to many of the largest employers in the oil and gas sector. The nearby Houston Museum District includes 19 museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts and The Menil Collection. The Galleria is also a short drive from the Texas Medical Center, which is the world’s largest medical complex consisting of 21 hospitals and numerous other healthcare-related institutions.
With all that is within close reach, there is also plenty to do and see in and immediately around the Galleria area. Do you enjoy the outdoors and exercise? Memorial Park, which includes an 18-hole golf course with a driving range, a swimming pool open during the summer, a paved loop for road biking and in-line skating, 18 tennis courts, a nearly 3-mile loop for running and walking, and a playground, is just a few minutes away. If you are keen on hiking and mountain biking, one great option in Houston is The Memorial Park Trails, which features trails of varying degrees of difficulty. At the southwest corner of Memorial Park is the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, which provides a variety of classes and events and includes many walking trails across 155 acres to enjoy and celebrate the great outdoors. Are you looking for a source of relaxation and rejuvenation? The 17,000-square-foot Mediterranean style Trellis spa at the Houstonian Hotel is a fantastic sanctuary with over 100 spa treatments to choose from for head-to-toe pampering. Do you enjoy dining out? The Galleria area has numerous restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisines, from fine dining at steakhouses such as Pappas Bros. to Mexican coastal cuisine at Caracol to New American fare at Adair Kitchen and other tasty options like Kenny & Ziggy’s New York Delicatessen.
