Credit Card Trouble

I have a good credit score around 720, but im 18 with limited credit history. I am having the hardest time trying to get a credit card. Is there anything i should be doing. I absolutely do not want a "secured credit" card thats just ridiculous. Any ideas? How can i start building this credit?
