Pretty far actually. Coastal...I live about an hour and a half from the shore, so kinda close?
You're way off. I live in PA and have never been to anywhere further than Michigan (State wise).
And I've never been farther east in the US Nebraska. Also, accents are more tightly grouped in the eastern US, they've had more time to diversify than in the west. I'll have to look up accents there and see if I can more accurately place it.
Though pop culture has a way of spreading language bits like wildfire, and you don't have to live in a place to pick up part of the accent, since accents don't come from the ground, they come from the people that speak them.
At least I got the country right!
