South Dakota Tied For Best Smelling State in U.S.
Whew! Hey Maryland, California, and Florida you STINK! Sorry, but you really smell. So much so that your states top the list of The Smelliest States.
But here in South Dakota, everything's coming up roses.
Here in the middle of the country, you will find five of the best-smelling state. South Dakota is tied for first with our neighbors in North Dakota, according to a new study conducted by Zippia.com.
When your drive around the upper plain states the consensus is more people are rolling down the windows to smell the fresh clean air. Well, except when you drive through Sioux County, Iowa. Now that is one place that needs a giant breath mint.
What was the smelly study based on? It came down to dirty air and trash.

The study examined population density using population numbers from the US Census to find the number per square mile. The more people the smellier.
Would you believe Wallethub got in on this and did a breakdown of dental visits, brushing frequency, and other important oral hygiene factors? South Dakota was ranked 15th for dental habits, care, and oral health.
