    let's go swim

    Would it be correct if I use the bare infinitive ' let's go swim' instead of 'let's go swimming'?

    Re: let's go swim

    I'd say either
    Let's go swimming
    or
    Let's go for a swim.

    I'm sure you could hear let's go swim. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's correct to say so.
    Hope this helps

    You have asked similar questions in a couple of other threads. I expect the answers here will also be similar.

    I would say only, "Let's go swimming".
