The Houston Galleria area is only six miles west of downtown Houston and just outside of the 610 Loop. Some call this part of town the Galleria area or Uptown. Even so, the district shares its name with the largest shopping district in Houston. It is an urban area with hotels, wonderful restaurants and night spots.
