    to have a long way

    Hello

    My dictionary says that we say: to have a long way to go to somewhere,
    e.g.:
    1. I have a long way to go to school/work
    2. People who live in the countryside have a long way to go to supermarkets.

    I am wondering if the part 'to go' is necessary in this expression. Is it OK to say:

    3. I have a long way to school/work.
    4. People who live in the countryside have a long way to supermarkets.

    Are all 4 sentences OK, so we don't need 'to go' phrase in it?

    Thank you

    Re: to have a long way

    You can not omit the "to go."
