Growing up we watched Happy Days so it was a must see for us. Walking along the Riverwalk was nice. The Fonz statue is easy to find. Parking was a little tricky...parked a few blocks away. Definitely recommend stopping here

After a lengthy walk along the river, my son and I reached the Fonz statue and, after waiting for other folks to finish, photographed each other with it. Don't expect this "Fonz" to look like the one on TV, but it's close.

I grew up watching Happy Days and have been quite a fan of Henry Winkler's work after Happy Days. This is a cute fun tourist stop, I couldn't believe how short it was I am 5'4" and I actually had to look up that Henry...More

If you grew up in the 80's this is not an optional picture opportunity, it's an absolute must see - thumbs up!!

Nice statue. But no need to detour to see it. Total tourist trap. Spend your time finding many other good places to visit in Milwaukee.

If you are on the Riverwalk you have to stop and take a picture with The Fonz. There isn't much to see other than the Fonz.

Travelled to Milwaukee to see a Phillies game; stopped at the metallic Henry Winkler. Cute little tourist trap.

I grew up with Happy Days. Getting a picture with The Bronz Fonz while visiting Milwaukee was at the top of my to do list. The kids didn’t understand. SMH.

Strolling along the Milwaukee River, you have to stop and visit the Fonz statute. A great part of Milwaukee!

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