A must To do

A must if you are a Happy Days/ Henry Winkler fan. It is a simple statue but displays the characteristics of the Fonz. Good photo opportunity!

This doesn't look like Henry Winkler and it is lucky I knew what the statute was referencing. I guess I know why Milwaukee thought this was a good idea - no, actually I don't.

what more is there to say! It's a must stop for a selfie, which is pretty easy to do with it being right on the Riverwalk.

Get a selfie - this is the most fun you will have in Milwaukee! Post on FaceBook or Instagram. All your friends will know where you have been when they see you with The Fonz.

We were talking a walk and came upon the Happy Days Fonzie. It's a nice tribute but he has a goofy look on his face. Interesting to see if your in the area but don't think I would travel just to see this.

Do you like Happy Days? Do you think Fonzie is the coolest? This is a great photo op. Definitely need to give a thumbs up for the picture. Yea, we're all huge dorks but we also got a great group photo.
