    Now that I've fixed them, they are both good sentences. Which one you choose depends on what you want to say.

    Re: similar sentence

    I wonder which of the following sentence is natural.

    1.The theme park is too crowded on Sundays. We don't go there on Sundays.
    2.The theme park is too crowded on Sundays. We won't go there on Sundays.

    Thanks.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hi ems.

    I just wonder the difference between "won't go" and " don't go"

    If a tourist wants to go the theme park on sundays. Is it natural for me to say as follows?

    The theme park is too crowded on Sundays. We don't go there on Sundays.(We means local people)

    Thanks.

    Re: similar sentence

    "We don't go" is the negation of the present tense "We go".
    "We won't go" is the negation of the future 'tense' "We will go".
    Is that the question?

    Thanks Raymott.

    Other than the future meaning of "Won't", "Won't" can be used to talk about refusal. e.g The car won't start. That' my question.

    Yes, if someone or something "won't" do something, it means they are refusing to do something. Of course, a car can't literally refuse to do anything. What your car is doing is "failing to start".

    That was your question in another thread, I think. In this one, which I read first, there is no context.
