Nutzilla!!
May 2021 • Couples
This was a fun whimsical sculpture! Raleigh is known as the City of Oaks, and this artist created this sculpture known as Nutzilla 🌰🥜which is located next to Shaw University in Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. 🎭🎨During New Year Eve Nutzilla is moved to the roof of the Raleigh Civic Center and just like NYC Nutzilla is dropped and brings in the new year!! If you are able able to go also enjoy the other sculptures in the area. We will go back at night to see the sculptures that are lit up after dark!

The Acorn is a fun piece of art that is unique to Raleigh. We found it because of Roadside Attractions app. Be advised there is very little public parking in downtown Raleigh. I think we spent 5 minutes at the site.

Not sure about the "tourist attraction" aspect, but it is a landmark of sorts. Still looking for the squirrel that put it there.

Raleigh's Nut
Oct 2017 • Business
I love this thing. I'm not sure why. Maybe b/c we drop it @ New Year's. Maybe b/c it's a giant nut. Maybe b/c it's so very Raleigh. It's in Moore Square, which is a great little park surrounded by places to eat and drink. If you have little ones, it's across from the kids' museum. Not worth a special trip, but, if you're in the area, it's worth a look.

It's an ACORN for God's sake!

I just don't get it. What's the big deal about a giant acorn sitting in a park that caters to the homeless of Raleigh? It doesn't distribute food, clothing, shelter, medical care...nothing. It's an acorn for God's sake! Just an acorn.

No more acorn, just a trashy park

Honestly, this place is rather a dump, and looked to even be slightly dangerous as we drove around it looking for the acorn. The acorn is no longer in Moore Square. Moore Square is a lie. If you're looking for the giant Raleigh acorn, head instead to Memorial Auditorium on East South Street and you can get your acorn experience in full. Avoid Moore Square at all costs.

The acorn is no longer in Moore Square... Moore Square looks like a dump... Nothing worth seeing here... Go a few blocks down the street to Nash Square instead.

Just in case you want to say you've seen it.

It is an acorn. In a poorly-maintained city park. With homeless folks milling about. Did I mention the acorn?
