Here is something different, this may ruffle some feathers but what cities (or certain parts of cities) have a stinky to downright putrid aroma when driving through. Think of a hot day and passing through an industrial zone that just had a nasty smell. What is causing the stink in the air?

Ah, who could forget the Aroma of Tacoma? Thankfully it's much better now. It was the paper mill.

Camas, WA still does get the stink out every now and then (there is a paper mill there as well).

Driving on I-29 through Sioux City, IA is terrible. Tons of rendering plants right by the highway. They don't call it Sewer City for nothing.

I remember driving through Fife and Tacoma on I-5 on hot summer days and getting a whiff of the Tacoma Aroma. It smelled like somebody ate a bunch of cabbage and passed a giant fart. Though it wasn't frequent it was definitely there on some days. Locals always told me how putrid it was in the past.
