Fun for All Ages! Seasonal Hayrides and Corn Mazes

By: Michael Fossbakk | October 28, 2012

Fall truly is the best season. At least it is in my opinion. There is just something special about beautiful fall days, accented by the changing foliage colors. The cool, crisp nights lighted by the moon are sometimes a bit spooky, but always glorious. I love the smell of burning bonfires and all the decorations that come with fall. But above all else, I love fall activities and festivities!

Two of the most fun fall activities in which to partake are hayrides and corn mazes. Whether you are a kid or an adult, these timeless treasures never lose their luster.  In that spirit, some corn mazes and hayrides are geared more towards teenagers and adults, as they add that element of fear into the mix.

Originally, corn mazes began as a way for farmers to gain a bit more revenue in the season. But since then, they have grown into a pop culture phenomenon and a staple attraction for many during the fall season.

In the same token, hayrides are also a big part of fall. Snuggled up with loved ones on the way to pick out that perfect pumpkin, hayrides create a cozy and fun feeling.

We have put together a roadmap of sorts to guide you to the best corn mazes and/or hayrides. Most are currently running, but check each individual website for days and hours of operation.
