As the headquarters of the Chickasaw Nation and proud home of East Central University, Ada is bursting with small town charm and big city culture. Its rural roots run deep, but Ada—hometown of music stars like Blake Shelton and Zac Malloy of the Nixons—is quickly becoming an arts destination worth putting on your radar.Learn More
Visit the tasting room of Ada’s Waddell Vineyards for Oklahoma-made wines, test your luck at the Ada Gaming Center and don’t leave without a sampling of Bedre chocolates, gourmet sweets produced locally by the Chickasaw Nation. When hunger hits, feast on Italian comfort food at Papa Gjorgjo, mouthwatering brisket and pulled pork at Pigskins BBQ or upscale pizzas, paninis and desserts at Vintage 22. Make sure to visit Ada in June, when the annual Ada Air Expo takes to the skies with a fly-in, air show and aerobatic displays.
