The leaves have turned and are canvassing our lawn and streets with their beautiful colors. We've already carved our pumpkins and gone trick-or-treating. Fall is quickly coming to a close as holiday music and commercials begin to flood our radios and television screens. As the seasons begin to change once again, we reflect back on some of the fun we had last month.

We searched far and wide for some well-known corn mazes in Pennsylvania, along with some hidden gems. Below are five family-friendly spots to consider for next year.

Cherry Crest Farm - Lancaster, PA

Open July 4 through Nov. 8, the corn maze is 5 acres with 2.5 miles of paths. What makes it fun are the clues set throughout the maze to help participants find a way out. This year's theme was "Music Through the Decades."
