Corn Mazes for Kids and Families in Greater Boston 2013
September 28, 2013

by Audrey Trieschman

AMC's Kids Outdoors Boston and Mommy Poppins Boston continue our monthly series of guest blog posts on getting the most out of Boston as a family. Mommy Poppins Boston is a free, online guide written by local parents for families looking for the best things to do, see, read, eat, learn, and play in Boston.

Have we got a puzzle - or four - for you. Larger-than-life corn mazes offer families the challenge of finding their way through winding paths to solve a mystery, claim a prize, or just make it to the other side - a perfect fall activity that gets kids and parents working together or gets the competitive juices flowing. Below are four of the area’s most popular.

Note that most mazes are not stroller friendly, so if you’re bringing young children, consider a backpack.

We'd love to hear about your family's corn maze adventures - add a comment below.
