Outdoor Tents

Take cover in a shade tent

Whether it's providing shade from the heat or throwing the perfect get-together, outdoor tents in the backyard can be used for a number of things. But with so many different types of tents on the market, it can be difficult to figure out which type suits the needs of your family.

Popup Tents

A lightweight popup tent canopy is perfect for providing shade to small sections of your backyard such as swimming pools, eating areas, garden areas and patios. Popup shade tents are easy to assemble and transport. Some popup sun shade tents even provide roof vents for extra air circulation, and five sides (instead of four) to provide more stability on those breezy afternoons.

Party Tents

With the help of a simple party tent, outdoor barbecues and family reunions are no problem. Party tents shade guests from the sun, and are large enough to accommodate tables and chairs. With the help of an extra pair of hands, shade tents for parties can be easily assembled without the help of a professional. And once the shindig is over, the canopy shade tent can be taken down and stored in a storage bag (usually included with the tent) until the next time you are ready to use it.

If you don't want the hassle of purchasing your own party tent, contact your local party rental store and rent one by the hour. For a nominal fee, party rental places will deliver and set up the tents as well as retrieve them once you're finished.

Camping Tents

Let's face it, not everyone enjoys roughing it in the woods. So even if you're not the outdoorsy type, you can still experience the joys of camping. Just grab a sleeping bag, throw up a tent and head on out to the backyard. Camping in the backyard is a great outdoor adventure for kids. They'll get a kick out of relaxing in a tent, telling spooky tales and roasting hot dogs and marshmallows in the backyard. Camping tents are easy to assemble and come in a variety of styles and sizes to accommodate any preference.

The frames and canopies of outdoor tents are made from durable materials that are resistant to water, mildew and rust. But to keep your outdoor tent in tip-top condition, follow the manufacturer's care instructions. And make sure the tent is clean and completely dry before storing it for prolonged periods of time.
