    Default Come with me / go with me

    I'm going to visit my sister's family. Do you want to COME / GO with me?

    Does the meaning change if you use come or go?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    In this context, they mean the same to me. I would use 'come'.

    Thanks, and in the following sentence
    Let's go together to my sister's place.
    only go is possible, isn't it?

    Thank you, and I've just found in Michael Swan's Grammar that in "come with me" we have "joining a movement", so we use come.
