You can grill just about anything, including fruits and vegetables.
The most common vegetables for grilling are things like tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers, eggplant, corn and zucchini. Here's a great link at About.com for preparing many popular grilled vegetables.
But there are other vegetables that grill up very well that might have flown under your radar, such as fennel bulb, artichokes, romaine lettuce, herbs, and asparagus.
Vegetables that might not do as well (or which might require some parboiling first) include carrots, potatoes, large sweet potatoes, beets, turnips and other root-y vegetables.

Probably the only fruits not destined for the grill are berries (except for, maybe, strawberries on a skewer), but those are better off as a cool treat on a warm night anyway, right?
About.com has a great list of possible grilled fruit concoctions you might want to try this holiday weekend. Let's hope it doesn't rain!!!
