Galleria Dallas definitely has world-class shops and dining.  There are also places you can have a great stroll with the kids and stroller to "breathe some different air". 

Go on the weekdays when it is a little less crowded, and smile at the other moms who have packed little lunches in baggies and tippy cups to walk through and window-shop.

The least expensive stores are on the 3rd floor, with the higher-end shops on Level 1.  If you are with girlfriends, eat at Oceanaire for lunch (cheaper) or dinner in the Westin hotel.  If you are with kids, grab a Starbucks and push the stroller down to McDonald's or one of the other fast-food places on the third floor.  And don't forget the ice skating rink!  It's easy to have a great day out for less than $20.00.  

Got teens?  Go to the makeup stores on the first floor and let them try on makeup to their heart's content.  Cost?  Nothing.   Williams-Sonoma usually has something cooking to taste and try.  The Godiva shop will have small chocolates or individual purchase.  Rink-side dining is always "popping".  Try Mexican food and a signature "Mambo Taxi" margarita at Mi Cocina by the skaing rink--very busy at lunch--go during "off-peak" hours.

This is a classy, interesting shopping center.  Have a great time strolling!
