Lee Highway Farms in Bristol, Virginia is officially more patriotic than all of us. Last year they wowed visitors by turning their corn maze into the state of Virginia, but this year takes the cake. You can stop by Stewart Etter's maze in Southwest Virginia that is currently a massive shape of the United States. Individual states and all.
The state lines actually act as the pathways that guide you throughout the maze. You also find 16 cities in the maze including Los Angeles, New Orleans and New York. Etter carved out the entire maze himself with the help of a couple of friends.
"And we even included Bristol," Etter told the Bristol Herald Courier. "We had to include Bristol."
Etter didn't forget about the kiddos though. They have their very own barn shaped maze that includes some animals to find along the path. The farm is really the perfect trip this fall season for the whole family. You can take a hayride around the property and visit the pick-your-own pumpkin patch. There's a lot of stuff to keep the entire family (including the young kids) busy for hours. It's a full day affair.
It's the best time of the year to visit a farm like Lee Highway Farms. They also offer up to 70 kinds of pumpkins for purchase and are also growing their own mums in the new greenhouse that was added to the property this year.
You'll find the farm at 15128 Lee Highway, Bristol, Virginia, behind Marathon, between I-81 Exits 7 and 10. The cost for the maze is $10 for those over $13 and $6 for kids 5-12. The property is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with extended hours on Friday and Saturday until 9 and 10 p.m., respectively. Take everyone on a hayride for $2 and grab your full-size pumpkins for 50 cents per pound.
