Bonds, get the top rated general obligation backed so the entire city has to go broke to get out of them. Beware lower rated, or non-backed, or those subject to ATM tax these days.

You can get about 3% with careful shopping, and they are tax free so that can get you close to 5% effective return.

You can resell them if you need the cash - not for short term, but if you gotta have the money, or need it in 5 years, you can get to it, they will go up or down in hard value as interest rates go up and down, but are about as safe for as high a return you can get these days. Harder to find, as others are turning to them too.

Bonds of all types now are for suckers just like like big new houses were back in 07 and earlier before the housing crash.There is a Bond Bubble building and when it crashes will dwarf all other crashes in the US.Many states,cities and of course the biggest bond issuer all the US Gov't have issued bonds that cannot be paid off without selling more bonds and getting into to more debt to pay them off.In the prvate sector its called a Ponzi Scheme and they always collapse when no more suckers can be drawn into to it.

Paul well written. Plus it keeps me in a job since I crunch numbers on Indiana bond issues. :)
