Have you ever imagined going on vacation and packing nothing but your toothbrush? A shopping spree vacation in Texas might be just that trip you’re itching to go on. Texas is home to the Top 2 shopping spots in the US according to Forbes Magazine. The Galleria in Houston and the indy retailers in Dallas make the Lone Star State the star state for fashionistas.
If one-stop shopping is more your style than hunting for boutiques in humid Houston, take a drive to Texas’s biggest mall, the Galleria, which boasts 2.5 million square feet of retail pleasure. Since you’ll be vacationing with a mission, stay in a chic luxury apartment right in the city. This 1 bedroom apartment has Mediterranean features to help you relax and unwind after a full day of trying on heels and swim suits. It’s simple and elegant with all the comforts you need. It’s spacious enough to hold all those shopping bags and has ample closet space to keep your new wardrobe organized.
Dallas may have less mega-mall conglomerates, but its over 16,000 retail stores in the city more than compensate. Like Houston, a Galleria mall is the epicenter of retail in the city, but Dallas has a decidedly more urban approach to its shopping style. Boutiques abound.
A great way to make this shopping dream vacation a reality is to have a mancation+girls’-weekend with some of your best couple pals. This spacious 2 story home in Dallas is perfect for a co-ed party that splits during the day. You get up with your besties for a hard day of retail therapy. Send the men down the block to Cowboy’s Stadium to watch the pre-season training or a big game in the fall. Meet back at vacation home base for dinner, drinks, or to get changed to go out on the town.
This home sleeps 5 couples comfortably and boasts over 4000 square feet of living space. All the TVs are flat screens and the home comes complete with a Play Station 3. Time to leave the boys and hit the down town strip.
