Discover the Burgh is one of the most read websites in Pittsburgh, and is all about sharing the best attractions, restaurants, and activities to do in the region for both visitors and locals alike!
Our articles are review-based and follow Jeremy and Angie's personal experiences visiting businesses and attractions in the greater Pittsburgh area, and to-date we have featured more than 900 unique spots with more added weekly.
What you see is what you get here. We live in Pittsburgh proper. We do not farm out work to staff two states over. We take our own photos. We are not owned by a media conglomerate. All articles are written by us and us alone and feature our honest opinions good, bad, or otherwise.
We are Pittsburghers, writing for Pittsburghers and visitors to Pittsburgh, and we sure do love this great city!
Disclaimers: We do not accept unsolicited guest posts. We do not sell dofollow links. We do not have an event listing page. We do not participate in influencer campaigns. Please do not email us asking otherwise.
