This is a comment, not a question: To me, the construction "go and ... " sounds like the person speaking is poorly educated.
The "and" is superfluous to the meaning. In my experience, I have only heard it from people (some of them my relatives, malheureusement!) who have not graduated from high school, or who are deliberately trying to sound uneducated. Moreover, they usually slur the "and" so that it sounds like "... go 'n' visit ... "We'll go visit the Eiffel Tower when we're in Paris" sounds just fine to my ear, much better without the "and".
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate aller in Le Futur (future tense)"

Interesting! Thank you!
Oh, well, as Winston Churchill said, Great Britain and America are two great nations divided by a common language.
I'm really enjoying the website and my French is improving rapidly!
