Houston Travel Guide

Houston Shopping

Texas is a state where you either go large or go home, and Houston''s shopping is no exception. Here the malls and credit card bills are super-sized - so be careful when embarking on a shopping spree! Houston''s most famous shopping zone is undoubtedly the Galleria, the fifth largest retail complex in the USA. It hosts high end stores and all the big names in fashion along so-called Millionaire''s Mile, with 320 shops in total plus high quality entertainment and restaurant options in a glitzy, gleaming mall where it is quite normal to wear sunglasses. If this is all too intense for you, stop by the Galleria''s predecessor Highland Village which has all the glitz of the quality stores without the elitist attitude. At Uptown Park visitors can enjoy the atmosphere of a European village as they stroll from store to store. In Kirby District you can find The Village, a 16-block shopping zone with plenty of boutiques, galleries and spas aimed at the more affluent shopper. Finally, Houston''s oldest department store, Foley''s, has recently become Macy''s but is still a pleasant and worthwhile place to shop. On weekends don''t miss Trader''s Village, an enormous flea market with everything from jewellery and clothing to tools and old Texas number plates. A great place to find a really unique memento of your visit to Houston. An ideal souvenir of your Houston visit is some Western gear - look no further than Pinto Ranch which stocks belt buckles, boots, saddles and even ten gallon hats.
