Bayou Boulevard is an east-west road in Pensacola. From its western terminus at Springhill Drive eastward to 12th Avenue, Bayou Boulevard constitutes a major thoroughfare, carrying Florida State Road 296. Bayou Boulevard is named for Bayou Texar.

East of 12th Avenue, Bayou continues as a two-lane, mostly residential road, closely following the eastern shore of Bayou Texar. It continues to carry Florida 296 until Perry Avenue, which takes over Florida 296 heading due south, connecting to US 90 (Cervantes Street). At Perry, Bayou Boulevard continues slightly westward, still hugging the eastern shore of Bayou Texar. It is interrupted between Strong and Cervantes Streets (to make way for the Bayou Texar boat launch). At Cervantes, Bayou Boulevard continues southeast until its eastern terminus at Chipley Avenue.
