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

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.
