Corn Mazes Near Charlotte

If you're like me, you LOVE getting the kids out on the farm to experience farm animals, farm life, farm stores, and farm crops! There's nothing like being able to run around in the open air and experience life on a farm! Even better, there's nothing like experiencing a corn maze on a farm in the fall! There are usually pumpkin patches, fall activities and entertainment, many have jumping pillows, an animal petting area, and of course the corn field with a maze in a special design. Families can wander through and walk the maze, for little ones they can answer farm questions to help guide them through the maze, and for adults, many have haunted trail corn mazes at nights! We've put together a list of corn mazes from around the Queen City or within an hours drive from Charlotte to let you know about all the corn mazes in our area! We hope you enjoy fall family fun this year on a farm!
