The Bronze Fonz is Milwaukee’s way to keep a part of ‘Happy Days’ around the city’s landscape. Made by artist Gerald P. Sawyer, the life-like statue of Henry Winkler wearing classic Fonz clothes and smiling while giving thumbs-up, is now so iconic to Milwaukee’s river walk area, that tourists stop by only to take a picture with Fonz.

If you are a ‘Happy Days’ fan, this is a good way to get a check on your bucket-list wish!

Bronze Fonz Reviews & Ratings

  • The entire river walk is nice. One of the comments from our group was that in 3 days we had not been harassed for change. I grew up watching the Happy Days and this was on our list to go visit. We achieved our goal. Check out all the art on the river walk if your every up this way

  • The Fonz is a little weathered now. Much shorter than I expected too. Worth stopping by though. Hopefully, you won't get yelled at by teens picking trash out the water. That was my only negative view. Other than that the area is a nice walk.

  • Great view of the river, fun photo opportunity, map of all the other sculptures close by. A Milwaukee must if you enjoy photos and kitsch.

  • The Fonz was a little disappointing. He's just life size and I was expecting a large statue. The river walk however is very neat a worth visiting. Many nice looking restaurants and bars and great views of old Milwaukee architecture.

  • I heard of this by researching places to see in Milwaukee since we flew here on our Chicago trip (short drive to Chicago). We got our pic taken happy to say!
