    What does this sentence mean

    She always wears her smile to anywhere she goes.

    Is this a correct sentence?

    It means that she always smiles wherever she goes.
    Your sentence doesn't sound natural to me; I would rephrase it. "She always wears a smile everywhere/wherever she goes."

    Is it ungrammatical to use 'to' before 'anywhere' which is an adverb?

    But remember, that "anywhere" can also be a noun

    The "always" is superfluous.

    Welcome to the forum, hues.

    Please note that a better title would have been She always wears her smile...
