Arno has given good guidance.
I have some personal opinions, for what they are worth. ;-)
Skip the Rhinefalls. Especially in August, the water flow is reduced. The falls are powerful, especially in the Spring, but they are not very high. Since you are in North America, visit Niagara instead. Just my opinion.
Skip Zürich unless you are interested in cultural items, or shopping at high-priced specialty shops, for which Zürich is a worth while goal.
But, if museums, art, theater, orchestras and shopping are not your primary interest, go to where the scenery is... Luzern is a much better base for that.
If you have special reasons for visiting Zürich, it is, of course, a different matter. I love Zürich, and always spend time there when I am in Switzerland. In fact, it is my favorite city for my personal interests. And, it is a good transportation hub, but far from the only one in Switzerland. That said, I and the moderators do not put it high on the list for first time visitors. It is not in the Alps.
