We were staying in Chicago and when we found out about the Bronze Fonz we had to make the drive north for a day trip. Took some finding as we weren't too sure where it was but managed ok. Well worth the trip. Quite a nice city too lots of nice bridges over rivers.

It's the Fonz! He looks a tad dark these days but still invokes the spirit and friendliness that is Milwaukee. Photo op!

A must visit if you grew up in the '70s watching Happy Days. The Bronze Fonz is located on the River Walk across from the Lakefront Brewery and around the corner from the Pabst Theater. We just happened see it as we were driving by and stopped to get a snapshot with it. It doesn't seem to get a lot... More

These happy days are yours and my happy days. The Fonz is still cool as ever! He could use a little tender loving care to maybe spruce him up a bit. I'm sure he gets a lot of attention anyway!

What a fun thing to remember some of the things from that show. That really was part of a time when sitcoms were so entertaining. If you want to see this statue,... More

Poor Fonzy has taken a beating here. The painted or stained bronz of the Fonz is rubbed off and he looks pretty tattered. Someone needs to do some maintenance.

We went exploring and purposely looked for the Fonz. The river is behind him and it is a very nice area

What's better than a bronze statue of Fonzie? A pleasant River Walk jaunt on the waterfront and you are greeted with the thumps up. You can almost here him say "ay!"
