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.

It was fun to see the famous acorn up close and in person. Not much to do but take your picture in front of it, but it's a fun stop.

Not sure how to review this, its a big metal acorn, located in a small park. The acorn is used on New Years Eve as the "acorn" drop, and spends its remaining time in the park. Its unique.
