Lyman Orchards Corn Maze

10 Amazing Corn Mazes in Connecticut

Corn mazes are a fall tradition in Connecticut. You’ll be impressed by the sheer number of mazes in the state and the mind-boggling creativity that goes into building them. Some are daytime mazes with clues and hints, and some let you come back in the dark with a flashlight if you’ve got the nerve. So if no one’s told you to go get lost lately, maybe it’s time to do it yourself, and bring along family and friends. Can’t get enough? Most are open on weekends. Check websites for details.

After all, this is where the nation’s first witch trials and hangings occurred – three decades before the more famous trials in Salem, Mass. Here are a few places around the region to explore your dark side. (Warning, some aren’t for the faint of heart!)

Historic Homes & Gardens You Need to Tour

Old houses have treasures to find and secrets to uncover, and in Connecticut, there are over four centuries of homes to explore. Some were home to well-known historic figures, like Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe. Others were built by individuals who became larger than life, such as actor William Gillette’s “castle” on the Connecticut River and dictionary namesake Noah Webster’s West Hartford birthplace. Still others house amazing art collections or are surrounded by lush, expertly tended gardens. You’ll find dozens of these historic houses, many of which are National Historic Landmarks, all over the state—and each has a story to tell.
