We already have a Michigander itching for fall and the summer season hasn’t even taken its last bow.  The beach isn’t even closed yet people!

Don’t worry, I’ll still answer the question. As you may know, there are several types of corn maze venues, and Michigan has the capacity to deliver to all audiences. Haunted, hay rides, pumpkin patches, apple picking, cider, donuts, concession stands and quick exits for claustrophobic.

Lets start with the East and move West across the Mitten. Are you ready to take some mental notes?

BestMaze: On Noble Road, just one mile rest of the I-96 and M-52 interchange lies this adventure.  According to abouttravel.com, this maze is an $8 cost that will get you access to a concession stand, an exit every 15 minutes, and security towers for your comfort. As well, BestMaze also boasts a delightful petting zoo and a Trail of Terror.

Corn Fun: Casco, a small town in the Thumb has a corn maze, hayrides, donuts,  cider, petting zoo, and pumpkins! The whole experience is very family friendly, so it might be time to put the kids in the van. Just kidding! Its not even September yet.

Grandma’s Pumpkin Patch: Moving north a little, you can visit Grandma’s in Midland. Looking to enjoy some fun that’s a little different? Grandma’s enjoys a corn mazeFlashlight Maze, pig races, farm flicks, and hayrides. Over the river and through the woods, to Grandma’s we go!

Carlson’s Crypt: With a name like that, are you prepared to head to Belding? Warning. This is not for those with heart conditions. Just kidding! Ages 10 and up are most welcome, and so are your flashlights.

Ed Dunneback and Girls Farm Market: Over in West Michigan, this farm is located in Grand Rapids and offers a 5 acre corn maze with directions throughout. What sets them apart? You have to get questions right to proceed through the maze because trivia is at the heart of this experience. Bring your brain for master maze trivia and an appetite for pie as well as other farmers’ market goodies!

Jacob’s Corn Maze: Heading much further up north, Traverse City boasts some interesting fun. With exciting activities like horse drawn wagon rides and a giant maze that is larger than 10 high school football fields, this maze is sure to be the kind of adventure you’re looking for in the north! Just head that way for a unique farm experience.

Fall is coming my Michigan friends! I hope this helps you prepare for the crisp and glorious season that lies ahead.
