please help with 3 day plan

I'll arrive at Buffalo at noon on July 7th, pick up the rental car and drive to hotel on Canada side. I plan to do Journey behind the falls, maid of the mist, watch the magic show at Greg Frewin Theatre.

On Sunday (July 8th), I'll drive to Toronto to see TN tower and walk around downtown area to see the city.

On Monday ( July 9th), I'll visit Louis Tussaud's Waxworks, Rossi Glass & see glassblowing tour, do Aero Car Over Whirlpool, visit

Queen Victoria Park.

On Tuesday, check out hotel and drive back to Buffalo, do cave of wind and visit Goat Island, hike along the scenic Niagara Gorge Rim Trail, then board flight at 7:30pm.

Is this a doable plan? I really appreciate any suggestions and input!

I have Green card, is it ok for me to cross the border?

Passport required to enter the US, you'd want to double check to avoid the hassle, I do know that eventually they will let you back into your country, but customs can make it lengthy and not fun if you do not have the proper documents...

There's a lesser-known exception to the passport rule: US Lawful Permanent Residents can present their I-551 "Green Card" instead of a passport to cross the Canada/US border in both directions, by land, sea, or air. (Official word: http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/whti-ivho/tourist-touriste-eng.html and http://www.getyouhome.gov/html/lang_eng/eng_sa.html .) US LPRs do not require visas to enter Canada, regardless of citizenship, and _must_ use their I-551 to re-enter the US.

I'll leave the itinerary check to the locals.

Itinerary looks OK, but a little sparce - you will probably end up doing lots more with your spare time.

When you do Maid of the Mist and Journey Behind the Falls on the first day, you will be IN Queen Victoria Park, so may not need to return there on the third day.

In Toronto, you will be visiting the CN Tower.

Don't drive back to Buffalo on your last day as none of the things you want to do are there. They are all in Niagara Falls, NY.
