Aragon Street is a short east-west street in downtown Pensacola, in the neighbourhood of the same name.

In its present incarnation, Aragon Street begins at Centros Street and travels east through the Aragon neighbourhood, terminating at Ninth Avenue.

Historically, Aragon Street ran from Alcaniz Street eastward to the Bay, including what is now Colfax Street.

It is named for the Spanish region of the same name. Confusingly, prior to the renaming of streets in 1906, Aragon Street was named Spring Street, which was and is also the name of a north-south street.
