For the second year in a row and third time overall, Denver Downs Farm, based in Anderson, SC, was voted the fourth best corn maze in the United States by USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest. Denver Downs also made the Top 10 list in 2016 and 2018 and was selected again this year, out of over 500 corn mazes in the U.S.
Denver Downs Farm, a family-owned and operated farm since 1869, is the only corn maze in South Carolina and just one of two mazes in the entire Southeast to make the coveted readers choice award list.
“We are both thrilled and humbled to be selected among the hundreds of contenders for the top corn mazes in the country,” said Catherine Garrison Davis, Co-Owner of Denver Downs. “As a family-owned generational farm, we take such joy in helping families make memories and spend quality time together and can’t wait to open the farm this season for them to come and enjoy the award-winning corn maze and all the other fun activities we have on the farm.”
Every year, Denver Downs chooses a theme for the corn maze and this year they are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Walk. The 10-acre maze design includes the Apollo 11 rocket, an astronaut, “First Step”, an American Flag, and a Tiger Paw (all owners of farm are Clemson alumni). The farm opens for its fall season on Saturday, September 28th.
“If you want to check off a corn maze on your fall bucket list, this is the one to do,” said Ron Smith, Corn Maze Operations Manager at Denver Downs. “We strive each year to provide more fun and even more memorable experiences for our guests at the farm.”
The farm has also been featured in the October 2019 issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine, adding to the many accolades the farm has earned including a “best pumpkin patch” top spot in the state by Reader’s Digest, Good Housekeeping and Southern Living Magazine.
In addition to 10-acre corn maze, farm animals, 35 fun barnyard activities (hayride, zipline, haybarn climb/swings, giant slide, jumping pillow), and live music each weekend, Denver Downs will have over 90 tons of pumpkins this season and feature new activities, the Giant Ropes Course and the “Double D” Gem Mine.
