    Default on/to the second floor

    Hello,

    Imagine we're on the first floor now. If I want to say that we need to be on the second floor should I say "We need to get to the second floor" or "We need to get on the second floor"? The same with "go": "go to the second floor" or "go on the second floor"?

    Thanks

    I would get to and go to any other floor.
