Ada is a close-knit but well kept little town. It has many things to do and a variety of activities, restaurants, and shopping places. The price spectrum ranges from very affordable activities to luxurious activities.
The new renovations to downtown present a lively atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoy the cute little shops going up and it gives the main street a homey feel. The surrounding area is beautifully decorated with nature and you truly experience why it is deemed Forest hills.
