    I guess the answer to this question lies in the eye of the beholder. But how much would you pay for a domain name that ranks well for...??

    "things to do in" ***major US city***

    Its not a buying keyphrase but there a couple of ways to monetize may be to sell ad space to local biz's or adsense. Adsense probably would not do too well in my opinion.

    well it depends on alot of things how old is the domain, Does it have backlinks indexed by google, has the site been blacklisted by google before,its alexa rank , how much traffic does it receive atm, how well does it rank in google and then also I always check to see how much organic traffic it gets from search engines. I guess you should ask meathead he deals with stuff like this.

    Too much work for me at this point in my career. A few years ago I would have jumped at it and been on the phone with local businesses. Everything from Pizza places to amusement parks would be interested.

    This is more like website appraisal instead of domain name. If you think it has strong rankings and you can monetize it easily then go for it.
