Titan is probably  the least inhospitable place in the outer solar system, but remember to bring oxygen and warm clothing.

When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona

Saturn's moon Titan is the only moon we know of with its own atmosphere. In fact, the atmosphere is so thick that we had no idea what the surface was made of until we sent a probe in 2005.

NASA VIDEO: Close-Up of Pluto's Moon Charon --Does It Harbor a Buried Ocean? ☼ The time-lapse “movie” of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon, below was recently shot at record-setting distances with the Long-Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft. The movie was made over about a week, from Jan. 25-31, 2015. It was taken as part of the mission’s second optical navigation (“OpNav”) campaign to better refine the locations of Pluto and Charon...

Enceladus, one of Saturn's moons.  The Cassini spacecraft captured an image of plumes originating from the south pole of the icy moon with a very clear signature of small ice particles. There is possible evidence of Yellowstone-like geysers fed by reservoirs of liquid water.

Saturn's largest moon, Titan, is the only natural satellite known to have a dense atmosphere, and is the only object other than earth for which clear evidence of stable bodies of surface liquid has been found.
