    Default place to live... or place to live in

    Hello everyone.

    s1. It's a good house to live in.

    I think that in s1 'in' must not be omitted.

    s2. It's a good place to live in.

    s3. It's a good place to live.

    In this sense, s2 is correct but I sometimes see sentences like s3.
    I think some nouns can be used like this.
    But I don't know specifically what kind of nouns including place can be used like this.

    s4. There are many good places to [go / go to]?

    Which one is correct? If both are correct, under what circumstance can both be correct?

    You could use either. There's no real difference.
