Invite Us Out for a Review
We offer reviews on Discover the Burgh for restaurants, bars, breweries, attractions, events, experiences, and hotels in the greater Pittsburgh region. If you would like to have us out for a feature during regular business hours or for a media event, please get in touch via the contact form below and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Scheduling is based on our availability and cannot be guaranteed. While we are sometimes available on short notice, our schedule can often be full well over a month out. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are a team of two, after all!
Complimentary coverage is reserved only for local attractions, restaurants, experiences, or events we personally visit/attend and are in review format. This package follows the editorial model similar to local magazines and newspapers where we retain full rights of content control, publication frequency, and hosted copy (including any pre-promotion for events at our discretion).
We do not have an event calendar or provide complimentary preview coverage outside of the above format.
For all other promotions of businesses, attractions, and events outside of the above, we will quote an advertising rate. This includes “influencer” campaigns with set deliverables and/or required copy and branding (e.g. three Instagram posts, two Instagram stories with swipe up, and two Facebook shares within one week). This is advertising, and we are happy to provide a quote for your needs.
For promotional style articles that are not in review format, we are happy to put together an advertisement quote and can produce a customized package to fit your needs!
Advertisement packages can include custom articles, dedicated social media coverage (fixed quantity and deadlines), graphical display advertising (administered via our ad network, Mediavine, on a CPM basis), contests (complimentary option available), photography or video production, freelance writing, speaking appearances, and more.
When inquiring for advertising options per the above, please provide as much detail as possible, your required deliverables, timeline, and budget.

Area of Coverage for Local Promotions
At this time, Discover the Burgh only publishes content from within the greater Pittsburgh region (southwestern PA).
As such, we are limiting our coverage to the following counties: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Lawrence, Somerset, Washington, and Westmoreland. This is more or less anywhere within the above map. We do not host articles from Ohio, West Virginia, or other states at this time.
For all other advertising elsewhere in Pennsylvania or other states/countries, we can provide coverage on our sister travel blog, Living the Dream. This site receives 95,000 page views a month and reaches a global audience!
Note: We are able to feature custom campaigns by non-local brands on a case-by-case basis if highly relevant. We reserve the right to reject any advertising inquiry if it is not a fit for the content of our site.
Discover the Burgh is part of World of Discovery Media LLC.
