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.

Easy to find and terrific view of the river. If you are there, you have to get your photo with him. Why not?

Our Fonzie is a one-of-a-kind and he is quite the photographed celebrity here in Milwaukee! Situated along the Milwaukee river walk, he has reason to appear in many photos. Fonzie was a good guy in "Happy Days" and we are proud of him! AAAAYYYYYY!

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