When in Punxsutawney.

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

Date: Saturday Jan 31 2015 - Monday Feb 2 2015 Stayed at the Country Villa across from Walmart: yes, the rooms were dated, but the new conscientious owners were a delight. our room had everything we needed including a tv, fridge, microwave and free wi-fi. a bit pricey for $149/night with a 2-night minimum, but supply and demand, sigh. ended...

I just got back from my 2nd time there. I went in 2013 and now 2015. 13 was more fun due to it had many many more people there. But I think if you are close to it its worth doing at least once.

Pretty neat place to stop and see while in the area. Punxsutawney is not a big town so make sure to see it while there. Phil's stump is on display and there is a lot of information. Great stop for the kids.

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.

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
