It’s that time of year again — the best time of year, in my opinion! It’s time to shop for Halloween costumes, try all of the seasonal foods and beverages, and visit all of the attractions we can only see when the weathers gets nice and cool. Corn mazes are a fall tradition and a great opportunity to visit local farms and spend quality time with your friends and family. Even better, these corn mazes offer a lot more activities than just the maze! Many of them also offer special Halloween events outside their usual dates, so check with the individual farm for a safe and fun option for trick-or-treating!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
