Navigating the twists and turns of a giant corn maze is the perfect fall bucket list item for adventurous NYC kids. Yet, with dozens of mazes scattered throughout the more rural parts of our tri-state area, the real challenge is deciding which one to visit.
My family loves our annual corn maze romp (that's my son in the photo above, pondering his next move at the local Queens County Farm Museum's maze), and now we're rounding up almost two dozen of the area's best corn mazes—all within 90 minutes of NYC.
We've broken down our picks to let you know which are better for older kids vs. preschoolers, which are accessible by train and which has the best doughnuts. Most all of these farms include extra seasonal things to do like pumpkin picking, pony rides, petting zoos and even a 100-foot monster slide in one case—all of which adds up to a perfect day trip this fall.
