About Tiffany Kraus

My name is Tiffany. I grew up in West Virginia and worked at the famous five-star, five-diamond resort, at that time, the Greenbrier Hotel after college. Growing up in WV my parents didn’t have the financial means to travel. However, as a military spouse, mom, and resident of Huntsville on and off for the last 13 years I have had the wonderful opportunity to travel and see more of the world thanks to my husband’s chosen career. His military career is what brought us to Huntsville.

With every move, I forced myself to fall in love with each place that we were now calling home because I knew we would only be there for a short 18 – 36 months. When I didn’t know anyone, I would go out exploring by myself to see what each city had to offer so I would have unique places to show off the new city I called home to those who came to visit.

Moving to Huntsville wasn’t any different. However, the longer I lived here the longer my list has grown. I am proud of the community we call home and want to ensure when my family, friends, or potential future residents take time to come to visit, they receive the five-star experience of my beloved city. I am always looking for the next hidden gem in Huntsville and surrounding areas to share with our visitors.
