In Word 2013, when you click Save As, you will see a "Save as type:" box at the bottom of the dialog. When you click the drop-down arrow, you will see this:

As an added note to the above solutions, remember to consider the options available when you select the PDF file type.

If you choose to optimize for standard (the default), the file will be larger but more suited for printing; minimum size is perfectly adequate for viewing on screen.

The Options button allows you to specify the range of pages to include in the PDF, but also to manage what else is included. If you are unsure about how your readers will view the results, I'd suggest checking the "ISO 19005-1 compliant" PDF option.

That is an excellent point by Eric. Under the "picture is worth a thousand words" mantra, here are two screenshots from the Word 2013 Save As dialog. This first one shows the "Optimize for:" option. The difference in size between Standard and Minimum varies by document. For example, I just tested it on two documents — in one case, the Minimum doc was 15% smaller than the Standard doc; in the second case, it was 50% smaller!

This second screenshot shows the dialog presented when you click the Options button in the first screenshot's dialog.
