I currently live in the Twin Cities area and have found that due to the combination of air pollution and the climate this is not a good location for me to live in due to asthma problems. I have found that other midwest locations also have not been good for my asthma condition. I lived in Portland, Oregon for 5 years and found that area to be much better for my asthma condition.

Do others have suggestions on locations that tend to be lower in air pollution and has a good climate for someone with an asthma condition?

I've always heard the SW part of the country was good for that. Dry, clean air. Unfortunately, my native Shenandoah Valley is one of the worst places. I have asthma also, and my doc told me I needed to get out. Well, I'm out of there, but still on the east coast, and almost nowhere here is good for folks like us. I may head west one of these days, but for now I'll keep dragging on steroid inhalers and hacking and wheezing. Best of luck to you.

Arizona or southern Arizona has one of the highest levels of people who have Asthma, not sure exactly why, maybe depends on what brings on your asthma.
Arizona is one of the worst states now for allergies, people have moved here bringing in their own native plants and then soimething is blooming here year round, plus my personal opinion is that because of all the development , ground that was undisturbed for ions is now being dug up, etc.
Arizona is supposedly benefical for people who suffer from aches/pains, like arthritis.

In order to make this evaluation, you need to specify whether your asthma is allergic or non-allergic. If it's non-allergic, it won't matter where you go. You also have to identify which pollutants you are allergic to. No single answer fits everyone. I have no allergies at all, until I get to the Colorado Rockies in the summer time, when the pine pollen make me feel like I have a cold.

Meanwhile, Try Mexico:
