What is a Gazebo?

Many people confuse gazebos, pergolas, and pavilions. After all, they all are outdoor structures that provide shade. So what is a gazebo?

A gazebo is characterized by its shape. These structures have a roof and most often are seen in octagons or oval shapes. They usually have their own floor, such as concrete or a deck, and they are used for sitting, entertainment, or even for events and parties.
