Please tell me which one is more correct "What I want to do is to go there" or "What I want to do is go there".

I'm really confused about this. And I also want to know where to leave out "to" when putting emphasis on verb like this. Thanks in advance.


They both sound perfectly correct to me, and with no difference in meaning.

Note that the version without to only works when the subject contains a do that the go can correspond to. For example, we can say "What I want is to go there", but we cannot say *"What I want is go there."
