Fall is here.
Well, almost. Fall officially begins Sept. 22. It’s that time of year where the weather should get a bit cooler, the leaves begin to change and your local barista starts offering you something pumpkin-flavored instead of regular coffee.
This means it’s also time for corn mazes and there’s plenty to choose from around metro Atlanta. Here’s six you should check out.
Still Family Farm
This farm in Powder Springs features a corn maze, a pumpkin patch, something called a roly poly, a hayride, tractor displays and other activities for kids. Admission is $15 per person, but free for children under 4 years old. Folks in the military get a $2 discount. The farm is open Sept. 22 to Oct. 28 on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until dusk. Check out the farm’s website for more information.
Buford Corn Maze
The corn maze opened earlier in September and will stay open through Nov. 11. It’s the 10th anniversary for the corn maze in Buford, located at 4470 Bennett Road.
