The Sea of Rains at Last Quarter.
The Lunar Alps and Apennines are bisected by the Moon's Meridian. You can get an idea of the height of these mountains by how far they extend into the dark side of the Terminator. At an elevation of over 5,000m, the Apennines are twice as tall as the Alps.
The only reason I would want to go to the Moon is for a ski trip. With the Moon's weak surface gravity you could take Alpine skiing to a new level. And you wouldn't need a ski lift to get back to the top! Of course there is no snow on the Moon, but I'm sure there is lots of Moon powder!
