I've always wanted to visit Punxsutawney and see Gobbler's Knob and Punxsutawney Phil. Even though we were there in the summer, it was fun going down to the landing where the doings happen in February. We got to see Phil in his burrow at the library.

Another accidental visit travelling through central PA. Stopped by Gobbler's Knob to see where Punxatawney Phil pops out every Feb 2nd to predict the weather. It's about a 2 mile trip off the main road - look for the sign just across the river a few streets. Not a lot to see there, but an opportunity to say once a... More

We had a great time in Punxsutawney with our kids. They loved the weather center and the gift shop most of all I think. It was crowded of course so I was happy to see that we could get the groundhog hats and and groundhog "poop" online once we were home. Ha. Fun day with the family! And exhausting. We... More

Another day for Groundhog's Day being Candlemas-a pagan and/or "Satanic" holiday dating back to 19th Century Germany, the annual Groundhog Day celebration held every year, on February 2, is a Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania tradition.

It was nice. I think I expected there to be move there. Much smaller than I thought. Just a little park and empty stage. I thinl I was expecting to see the groundhog there but he lives in the town library.

Groundhogs day. Freezing cold. Lot's of snow. Parked the car at the local Walmart and a bus took all us crazies up to Gobbler's knot. But, not before we became a member of the Ground Hogs Club for a mere $15 and participated in the annual celebration at the Eagles Club complete with free drinks and buffet style food. I... More

One of the most fun weekends I've ever had! We went to the big party beginning at 3 am. It was raining but no one cared. The hosts were entertaining and fun. What a well planned event. Two thumbs up!

A visit to Punxsutawney is not complete without a trip to the Knob. It is a nice walk from downtown and other parts of the town. See where Phil works on Feb 2nd!

Even in the freezing rain and snow, hundreds of people turned out for the annual event. The town opens up, the firework display and entertain were wonderful. Take the whole family but don't forget to dress warm. Bring chairs or you will be left standing. $5 per person for the bus ride to the top or you can walk the... More
