You probably wouldn't expect to be able to ice skate year-round in Dallas—let alone smack dab in the middle of a bustling mall—but that's precisely the pastime in which hoards of Galleria Dallas visitors partake each day. Its Ice Skating Center stays open from January to December, attracting even non-shoppers to this massive mall. Some guests even show up just to people-watch at the Ice Skating Center.
If you work up an appetite while you're shopping, check out one of the many upscale restaurants residing at Galleria Dallas. Locals highly recommend Grand Lux Cafe, an exotic eatery that specializes in fusion fare from Thailand, Malaysia, and the Caribbean. You might also develop an appetite while you're shopping, especially since Galleria Dallas plays host to such an impressive number of stores. Grab a designer handbag at Gucci or a new pair of jeans at Guess, or pick up something more casual from H&M or Macy's. These shops represent just a handful of the stores on Galleria Dallas's lengthy roster.
