Just came into some cash that need to park for a year or two.

What you are considering is a "fund". Most importantly, it can lose value, no matter who conservative it appears on the surface.

If this is money you'll need or have earmarked for something specific in a year or two, the best place would be a CD. The interest isn't great but you'll know exactly what you'll have at the end.
