To come to see/to come and see

Sirush,

Welcome to our forum.

Can you possibly provide a little bit more context for your examples?

Apart from that, I can think of a couple of ways to differentiate.

The phrase "come to see" can often (but not always) express intent.

The phrase "come and see" is more likely to express mere happenstance.

For example, can you see the difference between these sentences?

1: The Pittsburgh Zoo was always fascinating.  When I was young, I would often come to see the monkeys fling their feces at the ladies wearing pretty dresses.

2: The Pittsburgh Zoo was always fascinating.  When I was young, I would often come and see the monkeys fling their feces at the ladies wearing pretty dresses.

There is a major difference.
