Why I Love Living In Ada, Michigan...My Top 10 List!


My husband and I moved to Ada, Michigan in April 2016 after finding land and building. I was born and raised in West Michigan and Nate grew up in Washington, then relocated here for Calvin College. We quickly were drawn to the Ada community for a variety of reasons (listed below) and continue to live and work here. We are both amazed at how many of our clients are relocating to the area...more on that at a later date. So without further ado, here are my Top 10 reasons for loving Ada!

1. Historic Downtown: Ada features a picturesque downtown area with historic buildings, quaint shops, and locally-owned restaurants, offering visitors a taste of small-town charm. Some of my favorite restaurants include Zeytin's, Luna, Nonna's, and Myrth. There will also be a brand new boutique hotel opening up later this year (hopefully).

2. Natural Beauty: The village is surrounded by stunning natural landscapes, including rolling hills, wooded areas, and the Grand River, providing ample opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, and fishing.

3. Seidman Park: Seidman Park is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts, featuring miles of scenic trails for hiking, running, and cross-country skiing, as well as picnic areas and wildlife viewing opportunities.

7. Ada Township Park: Ada Township Park is a spacious recreational area featuring playgrounds, sports fields, walking trails, and a dog park, making it a favorite destination for families and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

8. Ada Farmers' Market: The Ada Farmers' Market showcases locally grown produce, artisanal goods, and handmade crafts, allowing visitors to support local farmers and artisans while enjoying a vibrant community atmosphere. You can visit the market on every Tuesday starting on June 4th.
