go sightseeing


Senior Member
I want to go sightseeing the cliffs.

Is this sentence correct?
I think it is a bit weird that the cliffs is right after sightseeing.
Can you help me with this?

Thanks a lot!

    "To go sightseeing" is an intransitive verb phrase; it does not take a direct object. So no, the sentence is wrong.

    Instead, you could say "I want to go sightseeing at the cliffs," or just "I want to go and see the cliffs."
