go home - go "to" work / home - "at' work
I can't find a book explains why I don't use "to" or "at" in front of home.
Can anyone please explain this for me?
+I hear people say go downtown, go abroad, go upstairs...
: Are there more I can learn? / Would it be wrong if I say go to downtown, go to abroad...
Thanks in advance! : )

Welcome to the forums.
#1 You can use and should use "at" in front of home.

Using "to" would require a possessive as well:
We are going to his home for a meal
I would like to invite you to my home
#2 Yes - you do not use "to" in these collocations.
