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!

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
