So when a girlfriend suggested we do a corn maze or a maize maze (see what I did there?) this week, I was definitely down. I’d only ever seen them in movies and I thought it’d be a fun variant from our usual night of simply grabbing dinner, which we did as well, but I digress.
Friday evening we went to Southern Belle Farm in McDonough, Georgia. I had never heard of Southern Belle Farm. I’d actually never been on a farm period, so I went in with an open and no expectations. However, I did not expect the price of admissions to be $14, I mean, what is there to do on a farm that would warrant a $14 admissions fee?
When we walked in, we noticed they had a wide variety of pumpkins of all sizes for sale. We continued on and noticed they also had quite a bit of activities, most suitable for smaller children… But we decided to release our inner child with one in particular, the seesaw! Now it didn’t exactly go as planned as we were both quickly reminded that were weren’t tiny 8 year olds anymore but we tried.
In addition to the seesaw there was the cow train, pedal carts, jumping pillows, pig races, and so much more.
When we got to the beginning of the maze we were told that there were 3 different mazes and you were allowed to choose whichever maze you wanted to try based on their difficulty. Being the badasses that we are, we chose the most difficult one. In the maze there are corn and agricultural trivia questions to answer as you make your way through which I thought was pretty cute, but what I loved most about the maze was the bridge we stumbled upon. The bridge is a tall platform that allows your to overlook the entire farm and the view from the top was absolutely beautiful.
We found our way out in a little under the 25 minutes, overjoyed by the accomplishment as we were told that that’s about how long it takes to complete. We then took a few pictures in front of their gorgeous flower bushes, and left.
