A smaller bronze likeness of "The Fonz" along the River walk...complete with leather jacket. Fun spot for a selfie or group photo. Easy to miss if you are not looking for it.

This is a must do for your out of town guests to dot the trip to Milwaukee. But let it be a surprise, especially if it's Winter. Great photo op but nothing else to it. Nearby parking is not always easy to find.

Oh heck yes, ya gotta pay a visit to the Bronze Fonz, a statue along the river honoring honorary Milwaukee son, the fictional Fonzie of 1970s-80s sit-com "Happy Days" fame. Growing up during the Happy Days/Laverne & Shirley heyday makes this a hit for me....More

If you grew up watching Happy Days, this is a must visit destination. We parked the car, bundled up, snapped a quick picture, and then back to the warm car. We didn’t realize The Fonz was so short!

Construction was still going on in November but you can reach the Bronze Fonz by walking one block over and approaching via the river walkway.

Was happy to finally get to take a pic with him. There is a lot of construction in the area so getting there was a bit tricky, but worth it! He is in need of a paint job though! 😊

A life sized bronze statue of Fonzie. Construction made it a bit tougher to get to, but the River Walk is pretty. It's good for a picture and a laugh but not much else.

It was fun to see this statue, but we didn't find anything nearby to spend time at. Really rather disappointing.
