  • go to my office every morning.
  • Sometimes I go to the deli to pick up breakfast.

Get means to arrive, so we use get when the focus of the sentence is on arrving at a place:

  • get to the train station about 7:10.
  • After I get to Manhattan, I walk to my office.
  • I usually get to the office by 8:30.
