    Prepositional phrases order


    Which order is correct:

    I reluctantly agreed to go to the zoo with my son.

    I reluctantly agreed to go with my son to the zoo .

    Does changing the position of the prepositional phrases change the meaning? And are there any rules governing their order?
    What about this particular sentence? Are both versions acceptable?

    Thank you

    Re: Prepositional phrases order

    Both are correct. The first is more natural. The second is OK but less common. They mean the same thing.
