Funny.

We were walking the river walk after dinner and came across Fonzie. Great photo op and fun to see. Still looking for Lenny and Squiggy;-)

Ayyyy!Easy to find in the riverwalk area of downtown Milwaukee. The surrounding area had plenty of shops and restaurants to visit. Pretty cool!

Was dying to see this since my husband (who's from the Milwaukee area) told me about it. After we located it, it was just as neat as I'd imagined. The statue is in decent condition, and makes for great photos especially since it's right on the river walk. I can check this off my list now.

Easy to find if you find the Chinese gourmet restaurant. Not sure it really looks like Henry Winkler. But nice size for a family photo...

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.

I'm not sure that I'd go out of my way to see this, but you'll definitely want to do the Riverwalk & you can hardly miss him when you do. We did cross the bridge to take our pictures with him though & found he's shorter than you'd think. He is pretty much life size for a shorter man. It... More

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?!
