Get Lost in These Midwest Corn Mazes

As if pulling off huge harvests and supplying food to the world wasn't enough, Midwest farmers also have an artsy side. Elaborate corn mazes put their design skills on full display. Bonus: Navigating through one is a crazy-fun way to spend an autumn afternoon.

You’ll feel like you landed in Hawkins, Indiana, in this maze inspired by Stranger Things at Exploration Acres in Lafayette, Indiana. 


This is as close to Hawkins as we are going to get.

Have a blast trying to “swim” out of the ocean-themed maze at Sever's Corn Maze. The corn is seaweed if you imagine hard enough, right? Head over to the Fall Festival afterward; it'll be open until October 28.
