There are 24 different regions of American dialects in the U.S., according to Long Island University. These regions vary from large areas like the Rocky Mountains, the Coastal South, or the Upper Midwest, but also include smaller areas like Boston Urban or Bonac, which is spoken in parts of Long Island.

Within these regions, dialects can get even more granular. In Pennsylvania there are actually five distinct languages spoken within the state. In South Central Pennsylvania most people speak a dialect known as Susquehanna, and they speak differently in Philadelphia than they do in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvanians who grow up near New York sometimes have a New York City accent, but those near the West Virginia border tend to have more of a southern twang.
Then there are Americans who didn't grow up speaking English at all. Certain American languages have developed by combinations of foreign languages and English, but all are very distinctly American. There's Pennsylvania Dutch, in the Pacific Northwest there's Chinuk Wawa, Gullah in South Carolina and Georgia, and Texas Silesian. Of course there are also numerous Native American languages still spoken all over the country today.
Most people consider the American English spoken in the middle of the country to be the most neutral of all dialects. This is also known as "Network English" because most TV broadcasters are required to speak in this dialect when they're on-air. But it's fair to say that it doesn't matter what type of accent you have in the U.S. - it's all uniquely American!
