The great thing about corn isn’t just how tasty it is on the cob or in a cup. There’s also how much fun you can have getting lost with family and friends in a field of stalks that tower over your head.

So if you’re looking for a fun fall-time family and friends adventure, look no further than this page. Here’s everything you need to know about our area’s corn mazes and pumpkin patches.
