    My best spot ever was an old Church... Hunted the spot 4 times and found a total of 13 silver coins... I also have great luck in yards, especially around the driveway and clothes line...

    I like camp sites of all kinds. To pick from your list I have to go with Amusement parks as they combine large numbers of people and money often. This should maximize finds. It goes without saying the older the site the better.

    Woods. Provided it's a grown-over homesite or foundation.

    I like churchyards, too. Usually fine and private places to be.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    City parks keep turning up silver for me....in the form of jewelry for the most part, but silver nontheless....ok a few gold rings as well.

    Whatever it is, it is valuable. If nothing else for the lesson learned or simply the experience of having been there.

    Yeah we have beaches too!! But they are infested with metal detectors...one guy told me he looks out his condo window and sees 4-5 guys every morning in same spots! Guess its early bird gets the worm! I am not doing our beaches here at all this year. Also beaches was not one of the choices!!!

    Metal Detecting

    Re: Metal detecting

    Like the woods because there is usually no one there to watch and you don't have to worry about screwing up the grass..the one thing I worry about is being in a secluded area and running into a lurking maniac. Hasn't happened yet, so I guess I'll just keep taking my chances
    I refuse to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death
