A suggestions from someone who has been there (all of those)

MANY times.

Fly in and out of Vegas; from Vegas head north to Zion (the Virgin River Gorge is a nice experience along the way). If you can't find a place in the park stay in Kanob Utah. From Kanob, Zion is less than 30 minutes, and the Grand canyon north rim is about 45-60 minutes. Bryce is about 60-90 minutes. Cedar Breaks, a mini Bryce, can be accessed along the way to Bryce.
From Kanob head east to Page through the lower Grand Escalante area, and visit the Lake Powell Dam. About a 2 hour ride. Then head to Monument Valley - try to stay at the hotel on site and spend a day there. From MV, head back west to Highway 89 to the east portal into the Grand Canyon. Exit the GC from the south portal and take I 40 back west to the rode the goes to Vegas via the Hoover Dam.

Around vegas there is also Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire, and a little further away Death Valley. All worth seeing.

If you want to avoid Vegas, Salt Lake City or Phoenix can be substituted.
