Area Information

Home to the Chickasaw Nation, East Central University and the Robert S. Kerr Environmental Research Center, Ada entices big-city transplants with the promise of a close-knit community, safe streets and quality schools.

Fill your weekends with family-friendly events, culture, entertainment and festivals. The McSwain Theatre, a restored Main Street anchor built in 1920, offers live music, plays and movies on the big screen. Main Street's east end lends space to an emerging arts community where you can explore galleries and studios, historic buildings and unique boutiques.

Relax at Wintersmith Park, an Ada treasure for nature lovers, or participate in outdoor fitness, community events and leisure activities. The park includes a lake, a lodge, trails, courts and a public amphitheater. The area is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

An aquatic center and sports complex provide spaces for community recreation against a backdrop of scenic greenery.

Ada is less than an hour from the heart of Chickasaw Country, Sulphur, Oklahoma. Visit Sulphur for a nature outing at the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, famous for its clear springs. Experience the story of the Chickasaw people at the award-winning Chickasaw Cultural Center.

Lounge in the lap of luxury at the Artesian Hotel and Spa, where you will find indulgent hotel accommodations. Be refreshed in the spa, enjoy the ARTesian Gallery & Studios or shop at one of the local boutiques.
