The Houston Galleria is one of those places like the airport, you can sit and watch people for hours. Sure there are people that go there to buy things, but my guess is that many go just to window shop, buy lunch and if they are splurging, maybe ice skate.
This is another view of the Galleria Financial Center. The 12 story tower is a mixture of retail space on the first several floors, then office space above. My guess is that it would be a great place to work, considering the 30 restaurants and over 300 retail stores connected. But all those stores might make it difficult to come and go, considering all the traffic it draws.
Still, it’s quite a site to go visit, eat, walk around or window shop. Who knows, maybe you’ll actually buy something!
