Lyman Orchards (you can read my post about when I visited there last year) for me is my go-to for all things apple cider donut related, I’m not going to lie. This year, I have been craving the opportunity to go to a sunflower maze. I have been drawn to a sunflower/farm maze for a while, so I dragged my boyfriend to go and check it out.
Lyman’s Sunflower Maze runs from July 31, 2021 to August 29. It is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $6 for children, and free for children under 3. $1 of the proceeds go to Connecticut Children’s. You can learn about the maze by going to their website here.
My boyfriend and I took a trip during the week on Tuesday, and had such a great time. This year’s maze honored Arthur, which is celebrating its’ 25 year anniversary. In fact, the maze is even shaped like Arthur, which is so cool to me since Arthur is one of my favorite shows from my childhood.
It honestly took us about a half of an hour to get through the maze, and yes, we did get lost during it. However, one thing that I thought was cool was that you get to pick some trivia questions to answer. My boyfriend and I picked TV, music, and movies. These questions are meant to help with directing you in and out of the maze, which I thought was really creative and helped make it more fun for us.
That said, I really enjoyed the chance to take a day trip. The area was beautiful, and it really filled me with so much joy to be surrounded with so many flowers. It was also a really unique date than what we have normally done, which I really like because it shakes things up.
