Don’t Get Lost! The Best Corn Mazes In Ohio

Of all of the fall traditions, the corn maze has to be one of my favorites. It reminds me of simpler times, of the carefree nature of my childhood.

People tend to think of Ohio as all cornfields. And although we have great cities and urban centers, there is something to be said for the maize-filled fields. Especially when they have works of art carved into them.

Ohio has small corn mazes, easy for even the youngest visitors to find their way through. But there are many that are downright challenging. I’m not an expert, but I have 3 rules to enjoy corn mazes:

  • Bring your own flashlight
  • Wear appropriate footwear
  • HAVE FUN!

Friendly reminder: Be sure to check each corn maze’s COVID-19 guidelines, available on their websites, before planning your visit.
