Punxsutawney and Groundhog Day

Visit Website

Groundhog Day!

It’s here you’ll find the most famous, weather-predicting groundhog in the world, Punxsutawney Phil! During the winter, brave the elements and make your way up to Gobbler’s Knob for Punxsutawney Phil’s annual - and always 100% right, do not question him - prognostication. If you can’t make it there for February 2 exactly, a visit to Phil’s Burrow, Gobblers Knob, and the Punxsutawney Weather Discover Center will do the trick.
