The thing I normaly do is looking at the landscape. Use googlemaps or Bingmaps to recognize old fields or traces of buildings in the ground. Also check if the area is under archaeological protection.
If you want to metal detect on archaeological grounds, you can volunteer at the archaeological service of a state or city. I don't know exactly how it works is the USA, but in Europe you can volunteer at excavations. In that case you may metal detect, but you may not keep the finds.

My buddy and I hunted a county park, what used to be a grist mill on the river. Very trashy but we mangaged 4 mercs and a dozen wheats.

One thing I did was try speaking with the head of parks and recreation. I had someone complain while I was at a ballpark, so I called the parks and recreation manager to find out if it was true that I was not allowed at that ball field. They said it was indeed true. So I asked where in town it would be OK and they gave me 3 different sites to try. One site I got over $50 in clad and a corroded hard times token from 1833. The other I got about $30 in clad, a silver ring, 1943 quarter, and a 1936 Walking Liberty half dollar. You could be just a phone call away from finding a good spot.

It is also worth asking farmers who own lots of corn fields. Ask if it's OK to search as long as its not planted. I've gotten my best finds in corn fields.

Have had my eye on a civil-war era brick home for a while. Decent sized yard, large trees. Yesterday my buddy and I stopped by, as we saw the elderly homeowners outside. They gave us permission, but said we were about the fifth party to hunt the property lately.

Kind of disappointed in finding not even one modern coin let alone an old relic. Homeowner mentioned one group a year or two back had dug several Barber coins and Indian Head cents.

My old yard permissions have been fruitless the last few years. Getting very difficult to find virgin territory anymore.
