Bronze Fonz

Bronze Fonz
A bronze statue of Happy Days’ “Fonzie” makes the perfect thumbs-up photo op on the RiverWalk.

Say “ayyy” to the Bronze Fonz! Located on Milwaukee’s RiverWalk just off of Wells Street, the Bronze Fonz is a must-visit selfie spot.

Shooting his trademark double thumbs up in downtown Milwaukee since 2008, the statue pays homage to Arthur Fonzarelli aka “Fonzie,” the tough guy king of cool from “Happy Days,” the popular sitcom set in 1950s Milwaukee. Standing 5-foot-6 (just like Henry Winkler, who portrayed the Fonz on TV) in his cool leather jacket, the Bronze Fonz is seldom seen without at least one visitor wrapping their arm around him or mimicking his thumbs up pose. During the summer months, the Fonz even has “patio furniture” set out so you can lounge and enjoy his stretch of the RiverWalk. Make sure to stop by and get your picture taken with this pop art favorite as you explore Milwaukee’s RiverWalk!
