Difference between For and To
I was wondering what's the difference beetwen " For + Infinitive + ing " and " To + infinitive ".

The first and the second sentence mean the same thing by answering the question : "what is it for?" In other words they define the purpose of that "great place".
We use those structures (in or for+ing) when talking about things in general terms.
