South Carolina Corn Maze Named As Nation’s Best
One of the most quintessentially fall activities is visiting a corn maze. This family-friendly activity is challenging, fun, and beloved for a reason. Farms across the country take the opportunity to create corn mazes as a way to draw in visitors. There are countless of these mazes across the nation and the state of South Carolina. But one South Carolina corn maze was named as one of the nation’s best. This is according to a recent USA Today 10Best list. They were voted to that list by USA Today readers. These mazes, including the South Carolina corn maze, are quality mazes and offer numerous other activities.
Voted the 7th best corn maze in the US was Denver Downs Farms in Anderson, South Carolina. This farm has been owned by the Garrison family since 1869. This year the fall festival runs from September 23 – November 12th. It features of course the corn Maze and a pumpkin patch as well as live weekend entertainment, lots of friendly farm animals, and bonfires.
