11 Amazing Corn Mazes to Visit in the U.S.

Pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and corn mazes have come to define the fall season, invigorating our senses and helping us embrace the great outdoors. Natural mazes date back thousands of years as a means for rituals, processions, and art. But in the U.S., mazes carved out of corn fields have become a huge tourist attraction, a source of income for local farms, and a fun way to celebrate the season.

Corn mazes around the country depict festive themes, portray stories, and feature characters to challenge people of all ages. Lots of mazes are family-friendly and are accompanied by petting zoos, picnic areas, and fall treats. But you can also find haunted corn mazes for teens and adults that feel like they’re straight out of a horror movie!

To get a little lost and have a lot of fun, here are a few of the fun and festive corn mazes to explore this fall.
