This last weekend I got a bee in my bonnet to find a corn maze. Not a hay maze at the yearly pumpkin patches that spring up but a living corn maze that captures that “days of yore” feeling. Believe it or not you can just google “corn maze California” and there are lovely people that have compiled lists and updates to the corn mazes in your area.
We chose The Big Horse maze in Temecula http://www.bighorsecornmaze.com we got there early, I suggest you do the same. There was a line of people waiting to get in by the time we were done with the maze, selection of games (these get crowded quick regardless of timing) and picking out our pumpkins (reasonably priced by the way). It opens at 10 am but for the most up to date times please see their website.
The kids LOVED the maze and we all got to experience the fun, excitement and quaint down home quality of being in the midst of the stalks. Something that being natives of Southern California we don’t experience too often. Heck I haven’t been to a beach in three years and I’m darn proud of it.
The cost to enter the maze is $9 or the kids can get wristbands to enter the maze plus play 3 games/activities (pillow bounce, hay ride, face painting, carb cob shooting etc).
It’s worth the trip and a wonderful way to spend a morning/afternoon.
