I'm flying in to the Santa Ana airport (John Wayne SNA) for a meeting with coworkers in Newport Beach. I'm not familiar with the area. I'll have about six hours to kill before the meeting, so I thought I'd head to the beach and do some work on my laptop.
For any locals or anyone familiar with Newport Beach, CA, where are some good places I could go? I won't have wheels so I'll need to take a cab or rent a car (I'd prefer to take a cab.)
I have grand visions of a cafe or restaurant on the beach with wifi and power outlets... one that wouldn't mind me camping out for most of the day. Anything close to that?
Also, is this a bad idea? Not sure what the crime situation is -- would I just make myself a target, sitting there with a laptop for hours?
