Zion's area activity ideas?

I am taking my wife to Southern Utah for our aniversary in October. Do any of you have MUST SEE / MUST DO activities in the areas of Cedar Breaks, Bryce, Zions, and the surrounding areas?

We are planning on taking the Jeep, but not wheeling (not her favorite activity).

We are staying the first night at Brian Head, then the rest of the time just to the East of Zions East enterance. We will be in all of the areas above, plus taking a trip to the Grand Canyon one day.

Thoughts on day trip stuff in each area? I have never been to any of these areas and I am excited, but looking for advice.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I always enjoy hiking the narrows. You can go up as far as you want and turn around if hiking the whole thing is too much.

Not sure if you are into rock climbing/rappelling, but I did the pine creek rappel in Zion's, and had an AWESOME time.

Oh yeah also there is a Zion's national park app, on iPhone at least, that lists all the trails and has info on them all. Could be useful

No golf, rappelling or climbing. Mostly hiking and riding around, enjoying the scenery. Thanks for the suggestions. I will look up the Narrows and see what that looks like.

Anybody done Angel's Landing?

Angels landing is a great hike, but not for those who are afraid of Heights. You could always turn around at the overlook if it appears too intimidating. You will never forget that hike.
