There are many options, the only good ones are the ones you fully understand. Muni's may or may not be the best option for you.

Treasuries
Corporate bonds
CD's
other savings accounts from other banks(yield shopping)
Preferred stocks

All of the above have their strengths and weaknesses. Each of them have their own risks and risk/reward scenarios. What fits your needs and your understanding?
