15 4th Of July 2017 Instagram Quotes

The 4th of July is one of summer's biggest holidays. Whether you're hanging out at the beach with friends or barbecuing in the backyard with family, the holiday brings some much-needed quality time and fun memories. Along with all the good vibes, 4th of July also offers up some pretty awesome photographic moments and, if you're like me, each one of them will find their way right to Instagram. Unfortunately though, no Independence Day picture is Instagram worthy without a fitting caption. So, having some awesome 4th of July quotes to put on Instagram will definitely take the coolness of your photo to the next level.

For me, seeing photos on Instagram that have a cool quote related to the picture increases my chance of liking it — especially on a holiday.

Likewise, the same quote can be used to help remind others what the day represents and encourage them to be more loving towards others.
