There’s nothing more refreshing than the smell and feel of the crisp autumn air. With the ever-present global pandemic, enjoying typical fall activities can get tricky while social distancing. If you want to participate in fall fun but don’t want to mingle with big crowds, consider a nearby corn maze. Each maze offers ample room for social distancing and has guidelines in place to keep guests safe.
