At Exploration Acres, there is so much to do. Check out these seasonal activities: August: Plan a trip with family or friends to their 10 acre sunflower field. Walk 4 miles of sprawling paths as you take unforgettable pictures among 24 varieties of sunflowers. U-pick flowers may be purchased by the blossom or by packages that include a French bucket. You may also fill your own five gallon bucket for a fee. For your convenience, food and merchandise vendors will be on site Friday through Sunday, while Exploration Acres is open. Mid September-October: Once you arrive you can warm-up with a quick run through our straw bale maze, then visit their 18-acre corn maze with over 8 miles of twists and turns (the largest corn maze in northwest Indiana!). You can test your skill at a pedal car race, fire a three-ear corn cannon salute, just dive into a mound of hay and more!
