Which is correct, I am going to a walk or I am going for a walk?

I am going for a walk  (correct)
Let’s read the following post, to know the reason


Use of TO

“TO” is used for a specific direction and the direct has to be clear
For example,
I am going to school (direction is clear, so we are using TO)
I am going to meet you (Direct is clear, as I am going to meet you)

But, If I say
I am going to somewhere (wrong)

I am going to somewhere (we will omit “TO”, as direction is not clear)

Just say
I am going somewhere


Direction – Use of TO

I am going to Dubai


Purpose of Visit – Use of TO

I am going to visit him
I am going to submit the assighment
I am going to get my child new uniform
I want to get the house-hold chores done
