Corn mazes are fun for the whole family and rest assured that they aren't always scary. Many mazes and hayrides are available during the day, so even the youngest family members can enjoy these seasonal outdoor activities.

And don't forget to stop by the farm stands for seasonal treats such as apple cider, warm apple cider doughnuts, and roasted corn. Corn mazes for Long Island kids have never been so much fun!
