Everyone waiting in line to take pics was chuckling and having fun! The Bronze Fonze was sort of a gateway to the beautiful Milwaukee Riverfront. I had no idea how much artwork and sightseeing there was to be done in this area. I'm going back to MKE to get to know the city better.

We stopped here on our way home to Indiana. We arrived at 6pm so light was fading. Found parking close to alley. Fun stuff to remember! Milwaukee deserves a closer look. Nice size and prettier than expected.

Wouldn't go out if my way to see this but it was easy to get to and there are some beautiful buildings near by to see as well as some great places to eat. Just take an extra 5 minutes to snap a photo here.

Located on the river in the cute streets of Milwaukee, the Bronze Fonz is definitely a memorable attraction. We had a blast taking funny pictures, so why not?!

This is a neat sculpture of Fonzie from Old T.V. Show Happy Days. It is on the riverwalk across from Rock Bottom Brewery. You can stop and take a photo with the Fonz. Statue is lifesize and wow is Henry Winkler small. Look on his the outside of his hands for his initials on one hand and his wifes on... More

If you are a Fonzi fan this is for you, otherwise not sure why and where they put it? In the middle of Riverwalk in the city. Again if you are a fan then this would be a neat thing to see.

After some diligent effort, we found his location, but had to clear construction on the nearest bridge, and cross farther down on Riverwalk to get our pics with him. We were glad we did, getting photographic assistance from a nice stranger at the site. Now we have seen Fonz on TV, and enjoyed his company in person/bronze, a nice, short,... More

It was a 9 degree dusk. Drove up from Rockford, IL just to say I was in Milwaukee. Did a search, what is there to do in Milwaukee? Museums and other things came up but it was past five on a Sunday so no Pabst Mansion. What to do, what to do. I mean I don't just want to go... More
