Fall: Season of Life-sized Mazes!
My brother and I live in the suburbs of Lancaster Pennsylvania, surrounded on all sides by Amish and farm country. Many times the views are just breath-taking. I love watching the seasons come and go because the fields and hills and meadows and valleys are always changing.
And while every season has its own beauty the Fall/Autumn season is always filled with extra excitement where I live. Why? Well one reason is because of the Amazing Maize that is open to the public as soon as the corn is tall enough!
If you've never been to a corn maze you have to do it at least once. But be certain to go with someone you enjoy spending time with. There's a good chance you'll get lost for a while. :) And depending on how late the season is when you go it might be a good idea to dress in layers. Food is normally provided outside the maze and you can eat before or after getting lost.
I was in the maze below.
I went with a friend and the experience of being in a maze was loads of fun! Most corn mazes also provide " flashlight" nights. You are normally required to bring your own flashlight in the maze for these.
Some of the mazes are quite complicated such as the world's largest corn maze in Dixon, California.
While others aren't anything too tough.
Its a bit late in the season now to find too many mazes still open but who knows... maybe you could still make a flashlight night! :)
