There’s all kinds of great stuff to do in Pittsburgh, especially if you’re on a budget, and the national media continues to take notice. Kevin Begos of the Associated Press created a list of five great things anyone can do for free in Pittsburgh, and it’s making the rounds. So far, it’s popped up on ABC News, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the San Francisco Chronicle.

The piece includes a nice 11-photo slide shot of the highlighted items, and we’re willing to forgive the mislabeling of a photo of the Fort Pitt Museum as the Fort Pitt Block House.

Check out the full piece.
