Lewiston Idaho smells VERY bad.
The paper mill there provides a unique "aroma"

From my experience, New Orleans and it's not even close. This was before Katrina, too. You get the nasty smell of the Mississippi mixed in with the stench of Bourbon Street.

Cedar Rapids, IA smells funky from the Quaker Oats factory and (I think) a Farmland meatpacking plant.

Grand Forks, ND smells pretty bad from the Simplot plant (potato processing).

Wellton, AZ from a large cattle farm.
Yuma, AZ from a lot of pesticides and field burning.

Regarding the comment back on page 3, about Jesup, GA, here's a better picture of how "clean" the place is.

Rayonier Performance Fibers is worse than a paper mill (which do stink), it manufactures acetate and plastics. So take all your olfactory memories of a regular paper mill and add on top of that an even sharper, more synthetic, more toxic-smelling edge. Great for the local motels and drive-in theater.
