Many apologies if this post is a repeat ! I ran it through "search" but didn't come up with anything. Anyway, where would you recommend living if you work in Uniontown, want to be near Pittsburgh, like half way between the two, and would like to live somewhere liberal, good food, peaceful.

Thank you !

Greensburg is a nice place. Also you might want to look into Canonsburg, Peter's Twp, and South Park. Rt. 43 goes from Uniontown, past these places, and onto Rt.51. But, none of these places would be considered liberal. Not even close. There isn't any place I know of between Uniontown and Pittsburgh that would be liberal like the South Side, Shadyside, Squirrel Hill, or Oakland. All of this area you're looking at is going to be pretty much rural, conservative, a little suburban, tons of families, highways, big box stores and malls, etc. It's not all bad news though. There is a Starbucks inside the Uniontown Target. That's probably where all the yuppies in Fayette County hang out lol. Honestly though, if you really, really want a liberal place, this area that you're looking into is just not for you. Even the Democrats are conservative. If you go around talking about atheism, gay marriage, being pro-choice, and your love of Obama...we'll, you won't exactly be the toast of the town.

Rostraver...but you won't find much liberal thinking out that way. And listen to Matt...if you want the liberal, yuppie, green crowd, you'll want to be a lot closer to downtown.

I wouldn't worry about the "crowd" so much - you can find people of varying viewpoints everywhere. Probably South Park or Canonsburg would be ideal?

Don't move in fayette county, taxes are insane, and they will arrest you for j-walking. I was told by a judge there that I wasn't guilty, directly after he gave me a year of probation, and $1,200+ in fines that I had to pay to organizations that had NOTHING to do with what I did.

If you decide to live in Fayette, it's best to alienate yourself imo.

Hey all,
Thanks for your imput ! Totally appreciate it. I mapquested Greensberg-->Uniontown and it looks like an hour drive. What would you say the driving time is from Canonsburg, South Park--> Uniontown?

If you tak Rt.43, Mon-Fayette Expressway, you can get from Uniontown to Finleyville in about 25 mins or so. The highway is deserted really. From there, 5 mins or more to get to South Park, so it's an easy commute. Canonsburg to Uniontown would take more time, IMHO. You'd have to go south on 79, then take 70 to 43, then 43 to Uniontown. Much more likely to get caught in traffic. I'd say that would take about 40 mins or so, but I can't say for certain.

Thanks SO MUCH for your advice. Another closer alternative, I'm thinking, is Morgantown. It looks like it's a half hour from Uniontown, and has a liberal environment and good food options. What do you think?
Also--would you know if flights out of the regional airport in Morgantown (USAIR, I think it is, which connect to Dulles in Washington D.C.) are frequently cancelled/delayed during winter months due to snow?

Yes, Morgantown would be great. I would have suggested it, but you mentioned that you wanted to be between Pittsburgh and Uniontown. Taking 79 from Morgantown to Pittsburgh isn't that bad of a trip. Also, why would you use Morgantown's airport when Pittsburgh is so close? 79 will take you right next to Pittsburgh International.
