After weeks of dating oh-so-many men, Rachel Lindsay will finally meet some families in week 8 of The Bachelorette season 13. The suitors are down to four guys -- Bryan, Dean, Eric and Peter -- so Rachel gets to spend the upcoming episode visiting each of their hometowns.

Based on photos released by ABC in advance of the episode, the visits bring joy, tears and a whole lot of kissing.


To meet Bryan's family, Rachel will journey to Miami. Despite some apparently rainy weather, Rachel and Bryan have a very enthusiastic reunion.

There is no rain in the photos when Rachel goes to Baltimore for her hometown date with Eric. Kissing, however, is very present.

The two seem to be spending quality time together outdoors throughout the date.

Another date taking advantage of the great outdoors comes when Rachel heads out west to Colorado and Dean's hometown of Aspen. There is a certain melancholy to the area's vast stretches of land.

Of course, there is more kissing.

The fourth hometown date is in Madison, Wisconsin, with Peter. Judging by their outfits, Peter and Rachel will be having a somewhat casual day together.

146567_5223-900x0.jpgTime is spent at what appears to be a restaurant, where the couple is joined by a group of people who seem to be Peter's friends.

They also make it out to a farmer's market. A man in a beehive costume chats with them, because of course that is something The Bachelorette would want to happen.
