9+ Not-to-Miss Corn Mazes in Tampa Bay and Beyond

It’s finally fall, y’all! We are sharing our TOP PICKS of must-experience corn mazes in Tampa Bay to get you into the spirit of the season.

Several farms in the Tampa Bay Area plant some pretty awesome corn mazes for you to navigate with the kids (in the spring, it’s often a sunflower maze instead.)

 


Pumpkin Patches in Tampa Bay, Halloween Events and Fall Festivals


 

This is one of our favorite fall activities for kids in Tampa Bay and even though it might be a bit of a drive depending on where you live, it’s well worth it!

A few tips before you head out on your corn maze adventure:

  • Check with the farm to see if you need to buy an advanced ticket as some time slots may sell out.
  • Bring plenty of water since it can get hot and to stay hydrated as you make your way through the corn maze.
  • Wear closed toed shoes since you will be on a farm and there are bugs.
  • Pack wet wipes for quick clean ups, since again…you’re on a farm.
  • Wear plenty of sunscreen and bug spray since we’re in Florida!
  • Bring some extra cash just in case there are activities available.
