The Bachelor franchise has sent many Bachelors and Bachelorettes on journeys to find true love — which have included many, many extravagant dates. But some of those nights (or days) out can be made into realistic Bachelor dates that you and your sweetie can embark on and not break the bank. Sure, sometimes the show jets off to exotic locales, but there are also plenty of dates that can definitely be recreated without hopping on a plane.
While some Bachelor franchise dates have been far away trips or have famous guest stars (ahem, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Amy Schumer), some of the outings have been regular ol' fun experiences that you and your significant other can have together in various cities in the USA and beyond. Or like on the show, these dates can also be a totally fun first date. And while Bachelor Nation has long wondered why no one eats the food on Bachelor dates, you and your companion can definitely chow down without having to worry about cameras or any drama interrupting your one-of-a-kind experience.
So if you're feeling like going on a journey for true love, here are some Bachelor dates you can really go on just like on the show. Roses and hot tubs optional, of course.
