They went there to find a way to India to get spices, because currently they got taxed heavily by the Ottoman Empire which controlled the trade and the Europeans wanted it cheaper. However, when they discovered it they decided to expand there since most of Europe was too well defended to invade while the Americas were near defenceless. They used to import goods like cotton, gold and other things only cultivated in the Americas. Some of these were brought back and grown here for example the potato.
