This is a fun statue to have a picture taken with if you are a Fonzie fan. He is a bit hard to find due to the construction on the River Walk at the moment but worth finding. Have fun!

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!

Ok - it's just a statue - But Happy Days a big part of my childhood! I have great memories of watching the show with my Mom and Dad. The statue is awesome - just wish that Milwaukee would do a little more around it....More

On the Riverwalk across from Rock Bottom Restuarant. There was work on the bridge next to the statue so access was limited (August 2nd) so be careful around closed walkway areas. Yes it is just a Statue but clearly enough of a stop to take...More

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