Default PR going shopping in the states

My husband and I want to go to Niagara Falls New York sometime. He is a permanent resident. We are still waiting for his permanent residency card to come in the mail. Besides that card, what else do we need to be aware of?

Having said the above, does the PR card actually come in the mail, or is it something we have to apply for?

Ahhh - congrats & I believe the PR cards are issued automatically once you "land", which is a process where they mail it to you 4-6 weeks after landing. That is what we were told when we landed on 27 May.
