    Get to /arrive in

    We say "arrive in" and "get to", I want to know the grammatical reason, that why does "arrive" come with "in" but "get" come with "to"?


    We arrived in London at 2 a.m.
    We got to London at 2 a.m.

    It's good that you know the correct prepositions to use with these verbs.

    As to 'why?' who knows?
