Commerce, Texas is probably best known for being the home of Texas A&M- Commerce university campus. That is not all Commerce has to offer a visitor. While there are great adventures that await visitors on campus, such as rock wall climbing or high adventure ropes course be sure to meander downtown to explore the shops and dining options that the city has to offer.

Start your visit at Mugs, with a great cup of coffee. They happen to serve coffee from the same roaster we get our coffee, so it’s 100% approved by The Oaks. Addison Coffee roasters do such an amazing job with their coffee, that we are always happy to see it served locally. Mugs has a great atmosphere in their shop, if you are wanting to meet up with friends, get some work done, or just hang out. Their location and tasty beverages will sure to keep you company. They even have a cute, fresh cut flower bouquet area set up for people wanting to freshen up their homes with flowers.

As you make your way around the shops, be sure to check out The Shop. This adorably curated shop has over twenty different vendors selling their goods in one place. You can be sure to find a gift for everyone on your list, from here. The owner of the space also has her items on display and for sale as well, which makes The Shop a perfect stop for exploring new items for your house or a gift.
