Most of the Movie ‘GroundHog Day’ Was Filmed in Illinois.
The iconic movie 'Groundhog Day' is set in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, home of the world's most famous rodent, the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil. But, as is always the case with cinema, the reality is somewhat different. Most of what you see on the screen in the film was actually shot in Woodstock, Illinois, about 20 miles east of Rockford.
The bed & breakfast Bill Murray's character repeatedly wakes up in was just a regular, but spectacular Queen Anne-Victorian home and didn't actually become a B&B until 2008.
