A trip to Milwaukee isn't complete without a visit to the Bronze Fonzie, it is located on the riverwalk, we parked at a restaurant and walked across the bridge to the statue. it is only a few minute visit place but if you grew up in 70's or 80's then it is cool to see

Not much one can say about a statue. It's worth stopping by for a photo opportunity. It's not very well signposted however, and we walked past it. It's right on the river walk.

Only 4 blocks from the hotel. If you watched the Fonz as a teen many years ago, get a cheeeezzzy photo with the coolest guy on TV in the 70s.

Cool photo op! If you have some time, head down to the water to take your photo with the Fonz. I went on a Sunday morning and there was no one around.

Great photo op for those who watched happy days. Great surrounding scenery too. Parking is really limited though.

A must see and great photo opportunity, Hard to believe that Henry Winkler was that small. Almost wish there was something in Milwaukee honoring Lavern & Shirley, and maybe there is and we just weren't aware.

This is a silly statue that is very comparable to the statue that you will find in Winslow Arizona (as in "Standin on the corner in Winslow AZ") Don't go out of your way for that either. I guess tourists come and have their photo taken with this statue (is Henry Winkler really that petite?) The city of MKE has... More

Anyone who grew up watching Happy Days needs to swing by and get a picture with the Fonz. You'll wish Richie and the rest of the gang were there too.

You can't come to Milwaukee and not take time to see "The Fonz". Glad I took time to narrow down the location or else I would never have found it. Thanks to Google maps street view.

I know, I know, it's just a statue, but statues are fun. The Fonz is right by the Milwaukee River and is fun to pose for pictures with.
