The father, the son, and the Holy Fonz.

Kind of a must see if your visiting Milwaukee but, there's really not much more to see than a nice statue of the Fonz next to the river. Good photo op spot.

It really doesn't look all that much like Henry Winkler. It really serves no purpose. It's not really art or kitsch. However, if you are along the Riverwalk and happen to pass, stop and take a photo. It's not something that really speaks of Milwaukee and our quality of life. It's more like "well, if those guys want to pay... More

Come visit the "Bronze Fonz when you are visiting Milwaukee. He is located just south of Wells Street on the east side of the river. Bring your camera and get your picture taken with the coolest guy from "Happy Days" Ritchie and Potsie are waiting for you at Leon's since Al's closed down several years ago. Fonzie is there everyday... More

I love Milwaukee. . .but this statue is awful. It doesn't look like the actor, the coloring is wrong etc. The saving grace is that you have an ok view of the river and downtown.

Hey! You gotta stop here for a photo-op with the Fonz. Statue is on the Riverwalk, so a quick stop is easy.

It's just a statue. But it is really cool. It's become a tradition for everyone to get their pictures taken with this life-size statue.

This reminded us of our younger days. Lovely location in downtown Milwaukee. We stopped on our way to the Safe House.
