    Default Go sightseeing vs Go seeing

    Hi everyone,

    I've read this in the Mc Millian Dic. It says that to go sightseeing a place means to visit a place.
    And I'm wondering if there are other ways to express this or not, e.g., to go to see or to go seeing.

    Could you please tell me clearly about this point?
    Thank you.

    You can say, "We're going sightseeing at Niagara Falls"; "We are going to see Niagara Falls."
    I haven't heard, "We are going sightseeing Niagara Falls."

    It's clear enough for me. Thank you.
