Forget Corn Mazes, Check Out New Jersey’s Sunflower Maze
Since I was a child, I have been obsessed with sunflowers. Why is this? Well, Pocahontas is hands down my favorite Disney movie and so much of the merchandise for the movie included sunflowers. With that being said, when I found out that New Jersey is home to a sunflower maze my inner child screamed. Just think of the Instagram pictures you can take in a maze of sunflowers.
You can roll around the maze like Pocahontas and John Smith did.
The Sussex County Sunflower Maze in Sandyston, New Jersey is celebrating their 9th season. Last year they had over 1.5 million flowers to create the maze.
The maze is open from mid-August to mid-September, depending on "mother nature" according to their site. They also state that they are the largest sunflower maze on the east coast.
Admission is $10 for adults, children 4-12 are $6, and children 3 and under are free. This year they are expecting to stay open until September 15th. The maze is open Tuesday-Sunday 9:00 PM-6:00 PM and Mondays they are open from 9:00 PM-5:00 PM. The maze is pet-friendly.
The farm also has a stand through October that sells pumpkins and squash. Plus, they do a Scarecrow building scavenger hunt, a kids' scavenger hunt, and a bug safari.
