If the food truck drive in is here definitely go! Bring chairs or a blanket to sit on. Not much shade but nice when the sun dips below the tree line. Lots of good food, music and drinks.

No corn at a corn maze. And still charge full price. Don't bother. Total waste of time and money. They didn't even let the weeds grow. No irrigation to an income producing crop. And we drove an hour to get here!!!
