As an American, you should wait for the spring to get the right timing. Very cold winter this one, here.
Yeah, it sure was cold in france and holland when I went in december!
But spring is reserved for a north american tour (never done that!). Well, I'll figure it out. Is spain nice, or is it....not?
Northern Spain is really beautiful (form Galicien to Basque Country and the Pirenees), and some cities such as Barcelona, and Granada are great (or so they say, I've never been to Granada). I'd suggest you to visit Toledo, Burgos and Segovia as well, they have some of the best and greatest architectonic features of the roman and middle-age eras.
Oh, and in case you are into the museum and art stuff, you shouldn't miss Bilbao either, the mother city of half the "Spanish Cafers Association".

Yes, it is! Aside from what Hayato has said, I'd emphasize southern Spain also: Granada, Córdoba and Sevilla ar all worth a visit (I'd talk about Granada's wonderful tapas, but you are vegetarian, and there are very little tapas without meat...), and that's solely talking about the cities. The countryside is also beautiful, with some really charming towns and villages, great landscapes and excellent food (for the normal people, at least >_>).
I'm the leading man. You know what they say abut the leading man? He NEVER dies.
