near there

I am at a hotel, and I am asking for information. Then a receptionist tell me that there is a great restaurant 15 minutes away. Soon after, I ask him this:

"What's to do near there?"

Is it correct to say "near there"?

Thank you

    "near there" sounds fine, but the first part isn't quite correct.

    I might say: What is there to do near there?
