Even the addresses of these post offices are quirky, from the U.S. Capitol basement to the Detroit River.

10 of 15

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
