My favorite things to do in Ada, Ohio

By Amelia Alexander

When I was younger, I struggled with living in a town the size of Ada. I wanted more opportunities. I wanted more things to do. Recently, I’ve taken appreciation of Ada. I like our community. I like that when I’m walking my dog and there are so many people to greet. I like that I can walk or ride my bike everywhere. I like that I have a personal relationship with all of my teachers and I know all of my classmates. I understand that Ada is small and sometimes it feels like there isn’t much going on, so I wanted to inspire people to enjoy some of my favorite things to do in Ada.
