ATLANTA — It's a favorite fall tradition for many, and there's no better time to do it than ahead of Halloween: Go to a corn maze.
People around Atlanta who enjoy a corn maze as a way to mark the season are in particular luck, as there are a number of them around the metro area and elsewhere in the state.
