The best places to mine Tin ore are Hillsbrad Foothills and Ashenvale along the following paths;

I should also note that there's no Alliance presence in Hillsbrad anymore, so if you're an Alliance player, you may not want to go there. – Michael Hampton Jun 1 '13 at 18:18
this depends on whether you're on a PvP server or not, the spawns for tin ore are around a mountain, there isn't any horde presence there. The amount of tin ore spawns in hillsbrad means that if you want lots of tin ore, you go to hillsbrad. – kalina Jun 1 '13 at 18:25
I wasn't thinking so much of PvP, as how far you have to travel to get back to a mailbox and vendors to clear out your bags. – Michael Hampton Jun 1 '13 at 18:28
There's always the little base in Arathi Highlands, not that far away. Or you could get bigger bags! There might even be a mailbox at Chillwind Camp in Western Plaguelands, which is even closer – kalina Jun 1 '13 at 18:30
