    A place to go?

    I was watching a comedy show. The actor says: "I would storm out of here right now if I had some money or a place to go."

    Shouldn't be "a place to go to."? I know "to" does not go with certain verbs like" grow. "I have a plant to grow", but with other certain verbs like "go" I have always thinking that "to" is a must in this context.

    A brief clarification would be very appreciated. Thanks.

    Re: A place to go?

    The final preposition is optional in that and some other phrases using to go. I can only think of "where to go" and its variants "nowhere to go" and "somewhere to go" off the top of my head, but I wouldn't be surprised to find others.
