Ill be staying there in my RV between 1-2 weeks the last half of Feb. I am wondering what must see/do things could be recommended for me ? I will be alone, Im age 56, single, fairly active, live responsibily, enjoy nature / car shows / christian events / karoke / music / pistol shooting / astronomy , etc... Are there any specific things in Lake Havasu (or nearby) that you would suggest for someone such as myself ? I appreciate it . Thanks.

They do have jet boat rides between Lake Havasu and Laughlin on the river and it takes 6 hours round trip with I think a 2 hour stop in Laughlin.

^^Ben Avery range, you're talking North Phoenix here^^, a long long way from Lake Havasu.

OP take the river cruise up to Laughlin and back. Spend some time and $$ there at the casinos. Lot's of entertainment.
Other than the usual hour touristing around LH, you might want to drop a line or two in the water and do some fishing.

Hiking and off-roading. The temps will be good in Feb for either. There are shops in town where you can rent ATVs, buggies, kayaks, etc.

In door range on McCulloch Blvd, Sam's Shooters Emporium (http://www.samsguns.com/about.html - broken link) you can rent weapons (machine guns).
There's an outdoor range at Sara Park not sure of cost or hours check with parks dept. (928) 453-8686
There is also a race track there Havasu 95 Speedway

There's a fireworks display in conjunction with the a fireworks convention in town not sure of exact date but it's usually in mid February.

Here's the CVB website Official Site - Lake Havasu City Convention & Visitor's Bureau - Lake Havasu City - Arizona's Playground

Sara Park just south of Lake Havasu
Sara Park Wash - Crack In The Wall

Take the ferry from Lake Havasu city to Havasu landing
Dreamcatcher boat schedule, Havasu Landing Resort & Casino, Havasu Lake, California

There will be a bunch of trailerable sailboats at Havasu around the third week of Feb 2011 if your interested in that sort of thing (generaly near retired to retired age group)
http://www.sailhavasu.com/

I dont golf.. but there are at least a few course's there

Pleasant walking from the London Bridge along Rotary park

You mentioned kayaking - you can park and launch for free at Rotary park and lots of interesting options.. and I beleive you will have lots of company if you go in the mornings.

Its a nice drive from Havasu to Parker Dam - some places to stop along the way.
