Nice photo background

Covered bridge provides a nice backdrop for photos any time of year. The little town of Ada is a nice place to grab lunch or dinner too.

This bridge (and Ada Michigan) is worth the trip. The bridhe and the river under it make for a beautiful setting. The surrounding area (Ada) is a cute little village. Several restaurants and quaint shops are all around. And of course Amwsy headquarters are threr too. It's worth the trip.

I grew up a mile from this bridge. I was irritated when young vandals burned it down on Devils night around 1980. The Amway corporation saw fit to donate the money to have it rebuilt. It should last another hundred years or more if vandals will leave it alone for others to enjoy. There were missing board in the old... More

Beautiful historic bridge, short stroll across and appears to be the pride of Ada. Parking is available on either side of the bridge it is just a short walk across and then you can walk into the town around the shops.

This is a beautifully preserved part of local history and a great photo spot. Nice picnic area around the bridge over looking the Thornapple River and a fenced ball park for community activities. Very nice restroom facilities. Parking lot on the Ada Dr. Side of the bridge. Cross the bridge and enter Ada Village shopping with quaint shops and restaurants.

Placed in a park on the Thornapple River - it's a throw back in time! You can walk across the bridge and into little downtown Ada which is also great with cute shops & restaurants. It's worth the trip. If it's summertime they'll probably be a local baseball game going on and if it's wintertime, you can skate on the... More

I live in this town and just love the area! I had my children's annual pictures taken here this year. The area is wonderful for bikers, walkers and runners! It is near a baseball park that is being used all spring/summer and fun to watch the kids play. The Covered Bridge is well cared for and a beautiful place to... More

On our drive from Lansing to Grand Rapids, we detoured to Ada to see the covered bridge. It felt a little out of the way but actually ended up being very close to our chosen accomodations in southeastern Grand Rapids. The city of Ada has a little park with parking at the covered bridge. On a pretty day, we enjoyed... More

Just after a visit to Fallasburg Bridge in Lowell, Michigan it is a short distance to the town of Ada, Michigan heading West toward Grand Rapids. A lovely small town, Ada has their own covered bridge to enjoy, but this bridge is a walking bridge. Also well cared for, the setting is lovely, especially in the Fall, where many trees... More

Great covered bridge within a small park east of Grand Rapids in this little community of Ada. A great town, shopping, limited dining, picturesque, and low traffic. Heartily recommend!
