When I was younger, I always looked forward to fall because that meant one thing: a day-long trip to a corn maze followed by pumpkin picking and browsing through all the apples at the farm stand.
If you want to take the family or invite your friends to a fun afternoon at a corn maze, here are five great spots to consider!
Lentini’s Corn Maze
This was the corn maze of my childhood. Answer trivia questions as you guide yourself through the 10-acre corn maze; answering all of the questions correctly results in a prize! They’re typically open toward the end of September until the end of October. Keep up with them on Facebook for their hours of operation.
