Want to know the perfect way to welcome autumn? Winding paths, 10-foot-plus corn stalks and acres of farmland fit for a family outing. We're talking about the best corn mazes in the United States, of course. We've rounded up the coolest corn mazes across the country that have garnered time in the spotlight for their designs and spooky Halloween happenings. (Moonlight maze walks, anyone?) No matter where this Halloween season takes you—eerie ghost towns, haunted Airbnbs, fall foliage tours—we recommend a stop at these spots. And you might want to bring a compass! Not into corn? Get in a spooky state of mind with our Halloween hub, which will give you plenty of ideas about staying active (and safe) during the scariest time of the year.

Note: There have been changes to the 2020 season and some attractions might be operating differently. Always call ahead before making a visit, as some locations require advanced reservations.

1. Sterling, MA: Davis Mega Maze

Davis Mega Maze lives up to its title with eight acres of winding paths that cover nearly three miles. But the fall attraction is about more than just navigating your way out of the twists and turns. (Be forewarned—that could take nearly three hours.) Within the maze itself, there are fun photo ops and games like hammer bells and slingshots to keep wanderers entertained. If you have little ones who start to get antsy, Maze Masters stationed along the paths are able to assist.

2. Ronks, PA: Cherry Crest Adventure Farm

Celebrating its 25th year, Crest Adventure Farm has dedicated its annual corn maze to the milestone. The scenic labyrinth is shaped like a tractor and sports a "25" in the middle when you take a gander from an aerial point of view. Grab a gameboard and try to solve the clues as you make your way through the five acres of corn stalks. If you're feeling really adventurous, try finding your way out of this bad boy in the dark! Stick around for other fun farm activities like animal appearances, a hay chute and tractor rides, to name just a few.

Happy Day Farm has garnered quite a bit of attention as a must-visit fall destination, and rightfully so.

But this is just one of many ways to stay entertained: Pumpkin bowling, bee barn visits, tractor pulls and a fun slide are among a long list of other family-friendly activities.

4. Queens, NY: The Amazing Maize Maze at Queens County Farm

No autumn would be complete without the Amazing Maize Maze at the Queens County Farm Museum! The American Maze Company builds a labyrinth every year that that stretches over several acres, with the length of the course often stretching to about two miles! Previous years’ themes have included a violin, a riverboat, a train, a farmscape and the largest living sundial. This year, paths will be larger, timed tickets will be required and employees will monitor guests. You can even make your way through the maze by moonlight if you so choose.
