Happy 4th of July from Newport, RI. 🇺🇸❤️🤍💙🇺🇸 One day only to take it all in! God Bless America. 🙏🏻⭐️🇺🇸 

The very first pic is the reading of the Declaration of Independence in Washington Square on the steps where it was originally read in 1776. 🇺🇸 The tradition has been carried on by the Sons of the Revolution since that time and remains an important part of Newport's Independence Day celebration! 🇺🇸

The rest is us enjoying the history, sites and sounds of Newport and Providence RI.
