    Fibreglass Phil

    by Orchid Updated Sep 7, 2013

    Dubbed the 'Phantastic Phils', some 32 different 'larger than life' statues of the Groundhog are scattered around town. You can get a map at the Chamber of commerce.

    Give the kids the map and settle back with a couple of cold ones at one of the restaurants in town. It'll take the little tackers hours to get back to you!

    Here's one for Starters...

    A town with a real rodent infestation

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Jun 10, 2009

    While most places do all they can to eradicate pesky rodent, Punxsutawney seems to love rodents, groundhogs in particular. Tall, human-sized statues dot the town's streets, and various businesses use the groundhog theme in their names or on their signs.

    As of 2009, the Phantastic Phils Public Art Project has placed 32 of these giant pigs in various costumes all around town.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barclay Square, bracketed by Mahoning, Jefferson, Union Streets and Hampton Avenue, is downtown Punxsy's only park. This large square and surrounding area are home to the Groundhog Zoo and Punxsutawney Memorial Library.

    The Groundhog Zoo in where Phil spends everyday other than February 2nd. He can be seen from the inside or outside of the library.

  • Hitching Post: 24 Hour food and beer

    by VAFields Written Feb 3, 2004

    We couldn't have been more anxious to see the Hitching Post. Located between Punxsutawney and Dubois, Pennsylvania, it was the only restaurant open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. There's a bar and full menu all day and all night. It also serves as a late night beer source (you can buy six packs and twelve packs there, as well). The food was really good and reasonably priced. I highly recommend stopping here if you ever travel to either of these towns.
