About Discover the Burgh

Discover the Burgh was founded by Jeremy and Angie, the forces behind the Top 100-rated and award-winning global travel blog, Living the Dream. The site is an opinion based blog that follows Jeremy and Angie's goal to visit and share everything Pittsburgh and southwestern Pennsylvania has to offer.

Their love affair for Pittsburgh began in 2008 when Angie moved to the city to attend graduate school at Carnegie Mellon University.  Jeremy soon followed, and they spent several years exploring the city and living in multiple neighborhoods including Squirrel Hill and Mount Washington.

In 2013 they left Pittsburgh to travel the world on a year-and-a-half long trip and thought they would never live in Pittsburgh again. That all changed in 2015 when, by an odd twist of fate, they were able to move back to Pittsburgh, live in their third part of the city (the North Side), and establish a permanent residency in the city they love.

To share highlights and recommendations from all of the wonderful restaurants, events, attractions, and businesses that call Pittsburgh home, Discover the Burgh was born.

Since being founded Discover the Burgh has grown to become the largest local blog in Pittsburgh and receives over 100,000 page views per month and has over 100,000 fans on social media. Come along on our journey to experience the best Pittsburgh has to offer!
