We’ve got five awesome corn mazes near Boston to help you plan your Fall fun. It’s that time of year when families start looking for farms, orchards for apple picking, hayrides, pumpkin patches and more. Many of these corn mazes have a wide variety of family friendly activities to help you get your Fall fun on!
Mann’s Maze at Mann Orchards in Methuen
This brand new corn maze is 7 acres and celebrates the 140th anniversary of Mann’s Riverside Farm. In addition to the corn maze there are tons of family friendly activities to make a day of it including a spider web climber, a sandbox, giant chess and checkers, and more. Don’t miss the pumpkin bowling and Mann’s homemade apple crisp!
Sauchuk’s Corn Maze in Plympton
This pumpkin patch and corn maze actually has two corn mazes to choose from as well as a lot of other activities including hay rides and a “cow train.”
Davis Mega Maze in Sterling
This mega maze has over 8 acres of corn and nearly 3 miles of paths and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours to complete based on the level of intensity chosen. Guests can participate in games inside the maze including one to help Tom Brady find his missing jersey.

Mike’s Maze at Warner Farms in Sunderland
Mike’s Maze, located at Warner Farms in Sunderland, is an 8 acre corn maze, and this year they are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 40th anniversary of the Voyager missions with a “Greetings from Earth” postcard design. Plenty of other themed fun can be found in addition to the maze.
Honeypot Hill Orchards in Stow
This maze is not your normal corn maze. In fact, it’s not a corn maze at all, it’s a hedge maze. This twist on the typical is housed at Honey Pot Hill Orchards so there’s plenty to do before and after (apple picking, feeding the goats, and eating some amazing apple cider donuts to name a few). It’s smaller and might be a great option for smaller kiddos or kiddos that might get overwhelmed with the bigger corn mazes.
A great deal for families! If you’ve been thinking about taking the kids to Fenway, here’s a great opportunity with Family Pack of Red Sox Tickets at Fenway Park. The packs are available during the Red Sox’s series with the Texas Rangers this week and the Friday night opener with the Seattle Mariners. The games are in the evening between May 23rd through May 26th available. $99 buys 4 tickets, 4 hot dogs and 4 fountain drinks.

Lots of fun stuff for kids at Fenway Park including a fun clubhouse where they can meet Wally and have some room to move. If you haven’t already, make sure to sign your kids up for Red Sox Kid Nation which is free!
Check out these child friendly places near Fenway Park to grab a bite before the game.
Are we ready, Boston?
Eataly Boston is open at the Prudential Center. It’s 3 floors/45,000 square feet of Italian (and local!) goodness. You’ll find the things that you’d expect including wine, pizza, pasta, and gelato, and even more things you didn’t even know you wanted.
Although Eataly Boston is likely to be crowded soon after opening, the destination itself is super family friendly. There’s going to be food for even your most picky eaters. Casual restaurants and eateries. Easy to grab a quick bite and grab a seat (or take it to go).
As a destination, it’s a fun way to sample some traditionally prepared Italian faves and to sample products sourced from Italy and also locally. As an every day/week/month stop, it will be just as much fun. They are working under a manifesto that includes “EAT. SHOP. LEARN.”
You can eat a little pasta, shop for it to take home, and also learn how to make and cook it yourself. One stop shopping of an entirely different kind.
Eataly was first opened in 2007 by Oscar Farinetti in Turin. His son, Nicola, opened the first US location in NYC a few years later.
