Getting out of the house is often hampered by the fact that most houses are located inside a bigger and fancier house. Step outside the house outside your house with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the corn maze at Green Acres Farm in Cary (a $20 value). Children ages 3 and younger are admitted for free.
Green Acres Farm unveils its maize-lined labyrinth to the public during the fall months to vex senses of direction on the fourth-generation family-run farm. The elaborate 2.3-mile corn maze sends ears of explorers out to navigate an intricate layout that incorporates the logo of sponsor M/I Homes, a pair of sunbursts, and endless mobius strips. A host of on-site attractions such as hay rides, a hay maze, fire trucks, tractors, and a sand pile for toddlers await families who want to spend a full afternoon out of the house or sneaky cheaters who blazed through the maze with the help of a portable popcorn maker.
Though Green Acres Farm offers discounted tickets for seniors, this Groupon still represents the best value.
