Everything will be open. It is prime tourist time in Newport. It is a great town. There is a whole street lined with shops and shops along all of the wharfs ( is wharfs the right word, or wharves. Lol). There are also a lot of restaurants. I believe there is also a trolley that takes people to the mansions. In front of the mansions is an incredible cliff walk. And, Newport has a great firework show on the 4th. Let me know if you need anymore info--I am from RI. You will love Newport. It is a beautiful town!!
Everything is open on 4 July, and yes Sail is corrct that you prpbably wont be in port long enough to see the fireworks show...although on more than one occasion a special cruise line brought there ship here to watch the fireworks show....
