WhereverFamily launched in September 2017; this award comes in the web publication’s inaugural year.
When Nehdar isn’t wrangling her three boys in the suburbs of Los Angeles, she can be found in downward-facing dog, looking for organic produce or furiously trying to get everything done before everyone gets out of school. Before motherhood, Nehdar was a journalist for both radio and television. Besides whereverfamily.com, she can be found at mommyhasastory.com and lafamilytravel.com.

This summer, family travel at The Peninsula receives an upgrade with the debut of Camp Peninsula, a children’s experience that recreates the spirit of camping right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The journey begins with a special welcome from Peter Bear, the hotel’s lovable mascot, at check-in. After taking a picture with the life-sized teddy bear, kids will be whisked away by a Peninsula Camp Counselor to a luxurious guestroom where a charming teepee awaits. An afternoon of camp-themed games and activities, including a hotel-wide scavenger hunt, rounds off the family-friendly experience, fun for children of all ages. Whether it’s a luxe staycation or an extended holiday, Camp Peninsula is an ideal way to ensure the little ones are happy campers.
