make it some place

make it (to something or some place)

1. To arrive (at some thing or location) successfully or on time. I can't believe we made it—I thought for sure that we would miss the flight! We only made it to the concert a few minutes before it was supposed to begin. I don't think I can make it back to camp—you go on without me!
2. To manage to reach some stage or point of progress. I ended up graduating with honors, but there were some points during college where I didn't even think I'd make it at all. This is the first time in over 30 years that our team has made it to the championship finals.!
