    a lot much more to do

    Which word should not be there?

    However we made friends eventually and we slowly realised there was a lot much more to do in the city than in the country.

    So, which of the two sentences correct? Or both?

    1) However we made friends eventually and we slowly realised there was a lot more to do in the city than in the country.
    2) However we made friends eventually and we slowly realised there was much more to do in the city than in the country.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: a lot much more to do

    They are both correct and have the same meaning.
