Greensburg is the nicest town around, and one of the best in the Pittsburgh Metro, but I would also look at:

-West Newton
-Ligonier
-Mt. Pleasant
-Saltsburg
-Irwin
-Vandergrift / Apollo / Leechburg

All of these towns are worth visiting. I don't think you are going to find too much culture, though. Most of Western PA is insular and provincial, even within parts of Pittsburgh itself. Young people tend to leave, unless they live with their families or are in school. This is a generalization, but it has been my observation regarding the areas outside of the trendy parts of the city. These towns would be sleepy, but relaxed, quiet, and (at their best) quaint and charming. I don't think Indiana has anything to offer over Greensburg that would justify the commute.

Good suggestions my friend. I agree and thank you for being unbiased in your opinion.

Seton Hill University, a Catholic College, is in Greensburg and so is the Pittsburgh area campus of Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM). The link below is for dirt bike resources in PA.
