2. Fall Faves: Corn Maze at Post Family Farms

Although getting lost is not typically my idea of a fun time, corn mazes are one of the few times I don’t mind it. Post Family Farms has a variety of activities: from square dancing and corn mazes to swings and food. For those of you who doesn’t like doing the same activity for too long, this is the perfect fall destination.


Getting lost in the corn maze is a great way to form new friendships or get to know older friends even better. Since Post Family Farms is such a large venue, it’s easy to change who you’re with quite frequently. I started out with one group of friends, but by the end of the night I was with an entirely different group of people.

After strolling through the corn maze, my friends and I settled in for some cider and donuts. We then proceeded to attempt to square dance, failing utterly (I blame my parents for my lack of dance skills). However, my favorite part of the night was the late night bonfire and s'mores.

There is something absolutely perfect about the crackle of fire and the way its warmth radiates in the night air. The flickering lights and changing colors always capture my whole attention.  While I am not typically the most introspective person, something about fires makes me want to do nothing besides think about and absorb the world around me. It’s a great opportunity to take a moment to truly notice the humanity inside us all. I could’ve spent hours sitting by that bonfire, but nights must come to an end at one point or another. I returned back to the dorms with a feeling of warmth both inside and outside, and I thanked God for a wonderful night of friendship and fun.
