USA Today recently released its 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards for the “10 best corn mazes in the US to visit this fall.” Three of the top five mazes are in New England!
Coming in at number 5 is Davis Mega Maze in Sterling, Massachusetts. The publication praised Davis Mega Maze for its diversity of options. “Visitors to the Davis Mega Maze wind their way through acres of corn and a few miles of trails. There are different intensity levels to choose from, numerous games, and even fun features for “techies,” such as Mobile Mazing and Geo Questing. ”
