United States Highway 27 (US 27), is a north-south United States highway. From Miami it goes up the center of Florida, then west to Tallahassee, Florida, and north through such cities and towns as Columbus, Georgia, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Lexington, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Ohio, Fort Wayne, Indiana. It once extended to Lansing, Michigan.

This at grade highway has been largely superceeded by Interstate 75, which follows a roughly similar route and in some places actually replaced the older highway. In the northern portion, parts of Highway 27 were replaced by and now are part of Interstate 69. In many places the route markers and the highway itself serve to connect local communites bypassed by the Interstate Highway.

US Highway number 27 appeared in 1927, as this designation replaced what had been the Western route of the Dixie Highway.
