Big D Shopping
We saved on going out to museums and parks. That was because a trip to a Dallas mall was like going to these 3 places in one roof. No kidding.
Dallas' love affair to retail shopping started in 1907 when Neiman and Marcus pooled $25,000 to create the very first Neiman-Marcus store. In 1931, Dallas already had Highland Park Village, the nation's first shopping center and became the prototype of what and how shopping centers were built from then on. Then Northpark (see above pics) opened in 1965, the first climate-controlled (meaning in one covered complex) shopping center in the world. Wow.
We went to the top 2 in the list and a pleasantly surprising one. Galleria Dallas- see previous entry - (synonymous to luxury shopping - Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Versace) and Northpark (synonymous to literally shop til-you-drop shopping because of its sheer size plus its' grandeur) but our loot wasn't as much as when we went to Grapevine Mills.
That just means we were still bargain hunters first but are just drawn by the grandiose of a place...and yes, saving some money going to 3 different places when we can be in a park, a museum and a shopping mall - in one place!
