So what is better than chilly nights, warm hot chocolate or apple cider? Chilly nights, delicious drinks, and a corn maze. The Plains Maze in The Plains, Va., offers all of that. Open Sept. 29-Nov. 4 from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. for the kiddies and also from 6-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays (Oct. 5-Nov. 3) for the grown-ups, you are sure to have a great time. But don’t worry, you are supplied with a map and a flag (in case you get lost). Also, my word of advice, don’t go with your friend that swears he is “naturally gifted at navigating” and doesn’t feel the need to stay within the plowed lines, this ends badly. For discounted tickets, check the Living Social deal here (two people, only $9).

Temple Hall Corn Maize in Leesburg, Va., is one of my favorite corn mazes in the area. It opens this Saturday, Sept. 28, and remains open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The maze is also open on Friday and Saturday nights from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. And what’s better, each weekend has a theme. Like any good preppy princess, I love me some theme parties. In fact, when le roomz (this is what I call my roommate because we’re really classy and fancy) invited me to join her book club her main selling point was everyone gets to host and I knew this is something you would adore (TRUTH). Now if that STILL hasn’t sold you on packing up and heading to Leesburg for a corn conundrum, well then maybe the pumpkin blasters (yes pumpkin cannons) or piggy races are all you needed to commit.

While a little out of the way, Lawyer’s Moonlight Maze is absolutely worth the drive. Located just outside of Frederick, Md. (about an hour drive), I promise you it will not disappoint. Lawyers is the biggest maze in Maryland, with four mazes making up the entire 8.6 mile maze. There is also a fun campfire to warm your bones and delicious cider. Plus, for just seven dollars you are granted admission to the entire premise: corn maze, outdoor movie, and bonfire in a tee pee. Open weekends from Sept. 14 – Nov. 4 (5 p.m. - 10 p.m. on Fridays, noon - 10 p.m. on Saturdays, and noon - 4 p.m. on Sundays), this is well worth the trip (and you could even make a nice little day of it and enjoy a delicious lunch at Volt beforehand). Just take note that this is a cash only maze.
