    Using 'to' after going

    I was asked by a student whether or not the following sentence was correct: "Where are you going to after lunch?"

    I said it should either be "Where are you going after lunch?" or "Where are you going to go after lunch?". But I couldn't explain exactly why his answer was wrong. Could someone explain to me, if indeed it is wrong, why it's wrong grammatically?

    Thanks

    It's not wrong in my opinion. You could say that the "to" is unnecessary.

    I agree.

    The 'to' is unnecessary because 'where' means 'to what place'.
