It's free and the picture were fun to text home. The walk along the river made it worth it. The Fonz was a little creepy but we still had a good time.

He doesn't really look like the Fonz and it is very small. We took a couple of pictures and away we went. It isn't really worth it to go out of your way to see this!

This town is so behind the times in public arts, particularly sculpture so what little funding is available goes to propagating a stereotype based on a tired old sitcom. Please. This is absolutely embarrassing!

It was fun to take pics with the bronze fonz. We didn't have time to walk along river but looked nice. Warning the outside of the Chinese restaurant his statue is behind was a bum hangout in the early afternoon anyway.

We had a little trouble finding him, but eventually we found him behind a Chinese food restaurant by the river. Turns out we could have just walked across from Port of Call, the restaurant where we at lunch, and found him more easily. EEEEhhhhhh!!!!

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.
