Tippin Avenue is a north-south avenue in Pensacola. For much of its length, it is a residential corridor, but its most southerly portion serves as an important thoroughfare, linking Creighton Road to 9th Avenue, and 9th Avenue to College Boulevard and the Pensacola Gulf Coast Regional Airport. South of College Boulevard, the thoroughfare continues as 12th Avenue.

From its northern terminus at East Johnson Avenue, Tippin travels southerly through residential areas, intersecting Olive Road before being interrupted by Interstate 10. Resuming on the south side of the Interstate, Tippin continues south to Creighton Road. From Creighton south to 9th Avenue, Tippin is still residential in character, but serves as an important through street connecting the two major thoroughfares. South of 9th, Tippin expands to four lanes until its terminus at College Boulevard.
