For foodies, summer means it's time to grill. Everything from perfectly seared meats to crisp veggies tastes better when blessed with those criss-cross scorch marks.

Get a little friendly competition going
Summer's a great time to try your hand (or foot) at different games.
Whatever your vibe, your local Canadian Tire has loads of portable, easy-to-learn games to help you make the most of every second of sunshine.
Get in touch with nature on a camping trip
Chowing down on gooey s'mores while sharing stories under a starry sky is exactly what summer nights are meant for.
Explore hidden gems around your city by bike
Biking is a fun way to experience your area in a way you don't often see it. Plus, you can take all the stops you want with zero hassle (food truck tour anyone?).
For a leisurely ride through the city, Canadian Tire carries the Raleigh Dobson Comfort electric bike that hides its battery within the frame for a super-sleek everyday look. The motor kicks in when you pedal, giving you the extra juice you need to go full summer.
Breathe in the fresh air and soak up the vitamin D while also getting a nice workout. It's truly the best of all worlds
Reel in the catch of the day on a fishing trip
When you think of summer, do you picture yourself chilling on a boat? If yes, why not gather your best buds and make a sun-drenched day of it? You might end up catching dinner too.
Enjoy a peaceful day of kayaking
Being out on the open water is a peak summer activity. So grab some sunnies, slather on that sunscreen and enjoy a day of kayaking.
Canadian Tire has loads of vessels to choose from, including this inflatable kayak. It shrinks right down when not in use, and comes with a pump, two aluminum paddles and inflatable seats for a cozy ride.
Whether you prefer a relaxing day at the park or an adventurous hike in the mountains, there's no shortage of fun activities to enjoy under the sun this summer.
Whatever you have marked down on your to-do list, Canadian Tire has all the equipment you need, from camping gear to beach chairs and everything in between.
All that's left to do is get outside and go full summer!
