    With or without preposition to

    There are two sentences:
    She told the children not to go near the canal.
    And
    The hotel is near to the beach.
    Can I say:
    She told the children not to go near to the canal.
    And
    The hotel is near the beach.

    Re: With or without preposition to

    Both sentences are more natural without 'to', though not incorrect.
