America's Quirkiest Post Offices

Quirkiest Post Offices: Hoolehua

Paul MacWilliams

Hoolehua Post Office, Hoolehua, HI

On the remote island of Molokai, this post office’s Post-a-Nut program provides visitors with a ripe or dried coconut to mail to the folks back home for the price of postage (from $11 to $16). The outfit has mailed more than 50,000 coconuts since 1991—averaging between 2,000 and 3,000 a year—to every state in the U.S. as well as to far-flung destinations such as Namibia, Turkmenistan, and the Antarctic. Remember to bring a magic marker so you can write a message on its shell. 69-2 Puupeelua Ave.; (808) 567-6144; uspspostoffices.com
