    Exclamation Infinitives

    Are the words VISIT and DRINK in the following sentences infinitives even though they do not have "to" in the beginning?

    He plans to take a different kind of trip and visit California.

    He plans to eat and drink all day.

    You don't need 'to' for it to be the infinitive.
