    Re: I went to my friends vs I went to my friend's

    They would both be correct if they ended with periods (full stops).

    - The first means you visited or got together with your friends.

    - The second means you visited the home of a friend. (Home is not stated, but it's understood.)

    You could also say I went to my friends', meaning "I went to the home of two or more friends."
