    Which one is right between 'go any place' and 'go to any place'?

    Hi,

    While I read a book, I found 'go any place' in one sentence.

    I think place is a noun so does 'go' need 'to' after it?

    Can you tell me which one is right?

    Thanks.

    I think it would be correct if the space between 'any' and 'place' is omitted, because 'anyplace' is an adverb, but I am not a teacher.

    The full sentence is "It could go any place that was in a book" from Midnight on the moon, one of magic tree house books.

    Re: Which one is right between 'go any place' and 'go to any place'?

    I agree with you both, Danny and Matthew. I'd call these right:

    'It could go to any place that was in a book.'
    'It could go anyplace that was in a book.'

    As Matthew said, 'anyplace' is an adverb meaning 'anywhere', or 'to any place'.

    Can 'anyplace' as an adverb be the antecedent of 'that'?

    I am not a teacher.

    Note that 'anyplace' means 'anywhere' and is informal AmE. It isn't widely used in BrE.
