Places you recommend to visit within 500 miles of Las Vegas

We will be flying into Vegas on Feb 9th for one week. We are not big gamblers and are looking for suggestions on interesting places to visit during our trip. We have a car rented for the week and don't mind touring around (or even staying overnight elsewhere in between). We love love good food, and seeing new and interesting things. I am taking along my new Canon 60D and want to get some great pics.

Any suggestions on cool things to see, great restaurants etc. would be most helpful.

Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon or the other national parks in that area.

You're going to drive 500 miles and back each day?

Let's clarify this: Are we talking about a weeklong road trip that starts and ends in Vegas - OR a week long trip that involves a series of daytrips with most nights spent in Vegas?

You understand that you are asking that you are in Peterborough and you go 500 miles you're in Quebec City ? A little research is in order. Suggest you check the Grand Canyon links on the upper right of this page

Definitely Zion National Park (my favourite over nearby Grand Canyon and Bryce). Death Valley is also an interesting side trip.
