Corn mazes have been around for a long time, but have become increasingly more complex. Seen from the air, they can appear as anything from the logo of a favorite sports team to a whole fantasy picture. Planning the maze is an art itself, as the farmer has to map out the picture on the ground and choose a strong-stalked variety of corn to make it all come to life. There are companies who will professionally design mazes, too.

Most Iowa farms will give you a map to help you find your way, and there are often extra "puzzles" within. If you plan to go, be sure to allot plenty of time and bring along the following supplies:

  • Good walking shoes
  • Water
  • Bug spray and sunscreen
  • A watch [you'll want to know how long it took you!]
  • The right kind of clothing [remember, you're walking through a cornfield]
  • Some mazes are open at night, in which case you'll need a flashlight.

So grab the kids and get ready to "lend an ear" [and your feet] - to the nearest Iowa corn maze.
