It’s difficult to fathom what 2.4 million square feet looks like until you step inside the Galleria. The usual European suspects—Gucci, Céline, and Dolce & Gabbana—all have individual boutiques showcasing the full range of new collections. If you’re more of a department store type, Saks, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom all have gleaming outposts in the mall. And since it’s not a question of if you’ll get hungry but when, there are twelve restaurants, including the only Fig & Olive in Texas. There’s also a movie theater and an ice rink. What’s not here? Hard to tell. If time allows, sneak a visit to the nearby Waterwall—a sixty-four-foot man-made waterfall that’s a quick walk over from the mall.
