I was here in September. Yes not ground hog day time, but just seeing the place is cool. Just go there and try to imagine the hundreds of people who stand here in the cold for about 30 seconds to see Phil and get the weather . Well worth a 10 minute stop. If you want Phil gifts, you need... More

It's a old city. Lots of old homes. Found Punxsutawney Phil sleeping in the sunshine in the window. Saw Rebecca and Abe from "Breaking Amish" at the local restaurant. All in all good day.

I didnt go on or near Groundhogs Day so I cant say there was much to see. When I got there there was a neat area for kids to run around and I got to see the Punxsy Phil tree. Wasnt well taken care of I'm disappointed to report as everyone carved their name on the tree. I'm surprised the... More

My cousin got married this past weekend and it was a beautiful Saturday evening service. The service was outside and it was unique and fun. They had a huge commercial style tent in addition to the banquet hall facility and it was a nice venue. Over the last few years they have made a nice entrance gateway that makes it... More

It was really cool to see this bit of American folk history. I ran into one of the town elders and got to hear a lot of cool history of the town, the Groundhog Day Festival, and the movie. People come here from all over the world (literally). It's a really neat town, definitely worth the side trip if you're... More

"Well, it's Groundhog Day... again... and that must mean that we're up here at Gobbler's Knob waiting for the forecast from the world's most famous groundhog weatherman, Punxsutawney Phil. Phil"? It was really fun and surreal to visit Gobbler's Knob. The stage is nestled at the bottom of the glen, and is surrounded by beautiful pines. My wife and I... More

After seeing all the hype on TV each year, it was fun to see where all the commotion happens. The 37 groundhogs around town are fun also. Good for families.

It wasn't Groundhog Day when I visited Gobbler's Knob, so there were not thousands of people there. Groundhog Phil wasn't even on the scene there that warm summer day. Still, I could imagine the festivities and excitement in the cold February air as the crowds wait for Phil to come out of his ceremonial tree stump and announce his weather... More

We were there in August, so "Phil" was not there, but we got to see the small park there and the "grandstand" area. Took some fun photos from the grandstand, and took a short walk through the adjoining woodlands which has cast iron statues along the walking route with various references to Phil and his "tongue in cheek history". From... More

Unless it's actually Groundhog's Day (February 2) you'll probably feel silly visiting Gobbler's Knob. Without the groundhog and the news vans and the tourists and the top-hatted members of the honorable Groundhog Club, it's just you on a hill with a stage and a padlocked fake tree stump. Even my puppy, who will sniff and try to eat anything, couldn't... More
