''What's the most interesting place you've ever been to?"

OR

"What's the most interesting place you've ever been?"

Do I need to keep "to"? Would the second example be correct?

I think you are missing a word. Shouldn't there be something between "interesting" and "you've"? With the omitted word and the omitted "to" your second example is a very different question from the one I think you're trying to ask.

What's the most interesting place you've ever been? :tick:
What's the most interesting place you've ever been to? :tick:
What's the most interesting place you've ever visited? :tick:

As you can see, there isn't just one correct way to say this.

Would there be any difference between "...been to" and "....been."?
