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.

I was looking forward to finding the Bronze Fonz. We circled the block for 30 minutes trying to find a place to park. there is construction around the statue so it is difficult to find. Look for the Rock Bottom Restaurant - it's right across...More

Currently, the walkway and area around the statue is under construction and blocked off. We went through the barrier and took our pics. If you happen to be in the area go for it.

A true highlight of any trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin is the tribute to THE FONZ in a publicly accessible river front location. He is remarkably tolerant of a never ending stream of selfies. Unfortunately, he will not be able to sign autographs.

Seeing the statue was great, however, it took 30 minutes to find a parking spot within a half mile of the site

Well, it's exactly what I expected: a bronze state of Fonzie. While the surrounding construction made it a little bit more challenging to get to, it was still fairly easy to find. 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.
