Santo Domingo at end of February

We are planning a trip to DR in Feb 2018, and intend to spend the last 2 days in Santo Domingo (Sunday 2/25 and Monday 2/26) and will fly home on Tuesday 2/27(Independence Day) from SDQ. As first timers to DR and Santo Domingo, will we be overwhelmed in the Zona Colonial? Will it be difficult to get around/shop/see the sites & museums? Safety?

Thank you. We were a little concerned it was going to be like Times Square on New Year's Eve meets Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras.

Will all the tourist sites be open on Independence Day this year 2018?
