Davis Highway is a major north-south thoroughfare in the Pensacola, Florida metropolitan area.

Also known as Florida State Road 291, the road runs from Hart Drive (just south of Fairfield Drive) to its northern terminus at the foot of the US 90 causeway to Pace, shortly after US 90 ALT (Davis Highway) rejoins US 90 (Scenic Highway). South of Hart Drive, Davis Highway diverges to become two one-way routes: the southbound is Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and later Alcaniz Street, while the northbound from Wright Street downtown until Hart Drive is signed North Davis Street.

Between Fairfield Drive and University Parkway, Davis is one of the city's major commercial strips. Near its intersection with Interstate 10 lies University Mall.

Much of Davis Highway was once called Ferry Pass Highway.
