An outdoor fire pit is a great way to extend your space, especially if you entertain often. It can get your guests outside, sparking up a conversation instead of sitting around a TV. A fire pit can make the difference between an alright party and an awesome party.

You Can Use It Any Season

A warm fire on a cold night will bring people closer for a more intimate social setting. Albany’s cool summer nights are perfect for watching the sunset and lighting a fire.
