I will be staying at the Fairmont Newport Beach for 4 days in a week. The conference is at the hotel so I won't bother renting a car. I'd love to at least get to the beach while I'm there! Where can I get to in my free time by taxi? What beach would you suggest? How long a drive and about how much is taxi fare? And, last question, is there anything worth seeing close to the hotel? Thanks!
