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

This is a great Happy Days tribute. It's just fun to see and stand next to and say you did. We were there in the winter, mid afternoon on a weekday, so the river walk it's located on was a ghost town.

Honestly not the most beautiful sculpture, but it serves it's purpose: it is a statue of Fonzie and you can stand next to it and take pictures. If you're downtown, walk the 20 feet extra to check it out.

SOMEONE HAS VANDALIZED THE FONZ! We showed up on October 7, 2014 and there was red marker or paint on his white shirt. This was very upsetting. Was it the work of an embittered Leather Tuscadero? Anyway, it's a statue. Of Fonzie. Show up, snap your picture and move along...

We came, we saw and we took selfies. The Fonz was pretty easy to find. However he had recently suffered from graffiti. I hope whomever did that to him gets a swift kick in the balls from karma.

If you are from the Happy Days generation, then this is a must to have a picture with. If you are not, don't bother unless you want to enjoy the beautiful view in the area.

Nothing too exciting, but a nice bronze statue of The Fonz from Happy Days. It's on the Riverwalk and easy to find. Great for a photo.

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!
