Online shopping might be more popular than ever today, but there’s still something to be said about taking a full day for rest, relaxation, and retail therapy at the nearest shopping mall. It gets even better when you spend the day with your friends or loved ones.
Houston has several amazing shopping centers and districts for both Texans and tourists to enjoy. If you’re staying at Jetstream RV Resort in Pearland, below are some of the best malls in Houston, TX you should visit during your stay.
The Galleria at Houston
As they say in Texas, “Go big or go home.” Not only is The Galleria the biggest mall in Houston, it’s also the biggest mall in the entire state of Texas — and the seventh-largest shopping mall in the entire U.S.!
The Houston Galleria boasts more than 375 stores — including iconic luxury brands such as Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton. If you’re looking for something more affordable yet chic, the mall also houses a Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.
This shopping destination also includes national and international banks, beauty salons and spas, and even a post office. If you’re feeling picky, the mall has over 60 food options for you to try, from cafes and fast-food places to more formal sit-down restaurants.
River Oaks Shopping Center
The River Oaks Shopping Center on Westheimer Road is one of the best shopping malls in Houston, Texas. The mall has over 75 restaurants and shops, with the River Oaks District being the go-to place for a round of luxury shopping.
The calm, relaxing, and high-end vibe of the shopping center is not only conducive for hours of browsing and buying but also just soaking in the sun and hanging out with friends. Aside from famous big brands, such as Cartier and Hermes, the complex also houses several spas, an on-site gym, and a movie theater.
Highland Village Shopping Center
Another popular shopping attraction on Westheimer Road is the incredibly stylish Highland Village. Like River Oaks, this shopping center exudes a classy, upscale vibe. It’s especially beautiful at night thanks to the lighting and ambiance, making it the perfect place for a leisurely evening shopping trip.
Some of the well-known stores and brands found here are Lululemon, Kiehls, Crate&Barrel, Anthropologie, Williams Sonoma, Sephora, and more. The shopping mall also boasts hip cafes and restaurants, including Ra Sushi Bar and Sweet Paris Creperie and Cafe.
Hong Kong City Mall
If you’re looking for something different, check out Hong Kong City Mall in Chinatown. The mall might be located on Bellaire Boulevard, but take a step inside and you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to Hong Kong.
The mall has numerous Asian-centric stores and restaurants. It has a delightful mix of high-end brands and smaller, quirky stores and stalls. Most of all, the mall has a fantastic selection of delicious Asian cuisine — including bubble tea shops to satisfy your cravings.
