Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, the changing leaves and all the fun fall activities. My boys are especially excited to visit corn mazes in Georgia. Below is a list of several corn mazes in Georgia. We added quite a few mazes last year based on reader comments, so if you know others, please tell us. Generally you should leave between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete the maze. Most places have other activities like hayrides, bonfires and pumpkins, so visit the website for complete details. We did a similar list of pumpkin patches near Atlanta last year and will update that list soon. Have fun in the corn!

Here’s a comment from one of our readers about Corn Dawgs Corn Maze. “Our family visited Corn Dawgs last weekend and I was amazed at all the activities that were included in the admission price. There was so much to do there that we stayed twice as long as we had planned. There are things for kids of all ages – I have a teenager and a little boy and they both had fun. They are opening a haunted maze this weekend and my kids all want to go back. Definitely worth the trip!”
