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.

This wasn't that hard to find like other people have said. Just park on East Wells and go to the Riverwalk. It is by a Chinese restaurant, but that's what the Riverwalk is, walking by different places and restaurants. It's a fun pic to take with buildings and the river in the background. And it's by the drawbridge.

totally before my generation but seeing reruns & the fun movies Winkler's done more recently, this is a good photo op. pretty easy to find. just look for the kind of rundown looking Chinese food restaurant; it's behind it, along the Riverwalk. after you see Fonz, you can do the walk which is really pretty & has more art along...
