Summer evenings are made for spending time outdoors, and what better place to gather with friends and family than around your own personal fire pit? Whether your taste runs to s’mores and ghost stories or fine wine and romance, a fire pit provides a little escape from the everyday — right in your own backyard.

You don’t need a sprawling acreage to enjoy a fire pit’s perks, either. If you’ve got a few feet to spare, you can soon be enjoying firelight and crackling flames.
