In route from a family wedding to a business meeting, we decided to break up the 11 hour drive and stay the night in Punxsutawney. Thought it was the "cute" town in the movie but that is not the case. Gobblers Knob; however, is the real deal and it was fun to walk around and see even though there wasn't... More

I'd been to Gobblers Knob once before but this time, 12/2716, took my kids and grandkids. What luck that in spite of it being winter, there was Bob Young, tour guide extrordinare, it's fun just to take photos of the stage, and Den, etc. but having a guide like Bob was a real bonus. We got not only the history... More

Driving through the area and stopped to see Gobbler's Knob 2 months before Punxsutawney Phil makes his next appearance on Groundhog's Day. The bulletin board and interpretive signs give a thorough walk-through timeline of the history of the area and the fun that is the Groundhog Festival. A few steps away is the stage, a couple of small buildings and... More

Always liked the movie, was a little disappointed the town looks nothing like the movie. Was hoping to find a nice place to eat, but honestly there is nothing much there. Stopped in at the Burrow for a drink. It's pretty far off the beaten path, probably won't be back.

I went to Gobbler's Knob in October when no one else was around. It's a little deserted feeling but the stage and everything are still there for you to see. It's fun to be able to walk up to Phil's Burrow and see what the inside looks like and stand on the stage when there aren't 30,000 people there. There's... More

We stopped by since we were driving through town. It is a little bit out of town up on a hill. There are several signs explaining the history of Groundhog Day and how Punxsutawney Phil plays a part in it. You can also walk down to the stage to see the stump he comes out from each year on February... More

We passed through on a whim. Mr. Young had greeted us, and appears to be there most the time. The man is a fountain of knowledge on everything associated with the Ground Hog Day traditions. We always loved the Ground Hog, but now we have a new found respect for his prognostication of the weather! Think snow😀. The Korn's

Neat to go to the place where weather is determined each February 2 by a ground hog. A must see if you are in town! There is a cute little trail you can walk on and many photo opportunities. You can also stand on the stage and take photos there.

After watching the film Groundhog Day wanted to go and see where the actual weather predictions are made in February every year by Punxsutawney Phil. Although not much going this time of year it attracts about 30,000 people in February for the prediction and they have to shuttle people in by bus from about 3am in the morning. Greeted by... More

Our visit was in the middle of September so nothing special was going on, however it was neat to be where the annual ceremony happens. Nice area outside of town, easy to drive to. Hopefully next time we can come back to watch the seer of seers.
