America: The land of the free and the home of Bachelor Nation.

With Independence Day weekend upon us, many Americans are ready to savor hot summer nights, block party bashes and some mouthwatering BBQ.

At the same time, there's a certain group of residents that may deserve an extra bit of celebrating. Yes, we're talking about the men and women from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchise.

While some are currently in Mexico searching for love during Bachelor in Paradise filming, others are here in the states rejoicing in a nation filled with roses, Instagram sponsorships and Chris Harrison.

As for us, we're just happy we continue to see hookups, breakups and yes, even the occasional fairytale ending. You go Ryan and Trista Sutter!

Before you finalize plans for the entire Fourth of July weekend, we decided to provide a fun, innocent guide to celebrating the holiday.

We searched for some memorable faces from the franchise to see the products, activities and projects they love away from the Bachelor Mansion. As it turns out, some suggestions may make this year's July 4th celebration the most dramatic enjoyable one yet.

Will you accept our guide and dive right in below?

We could go on, but we think you get the message. This weekend doesn't have to include an over-the-top helicopter ride or a vacation somewhere in a far-away land to be legit.

You do you and who knows, perhaps sparks will fly this holiday weekend.

The Bachelorette airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC. Bachelor in Paradise also returns this August to ABC.
