Miracle Mile–Los Angeles

The  Miracle Mile has existed as a residential neighborhood the city of Los Angeles since the 1920’s It became a center of commerce in the 1930’s.  In the 21st century the ever-evolving Miracle Mile continues to have something for everyone.

The historic origin of the Mile is Wilshire Blvd.from La Brea Ave. on the east to Fairfax Ave. on the west.  The North Miracle Mile Historic District reaches to Beverly Blvd. on the north.  Olympic Blvd is the southern boundary.  It should be noted that businesses on Wilshire Blvd east to Highland Ave. are also considered a part  of the Miracle Mile.

If the Hollywood Sign is Los Angeles’ Eiffel Tower then the La Brea Tar Pits are our Pyramids of Geza.  The La Brea Tar Pits is an internationally known fossil site with the largest collection of Ice Age plants and animals in the world. There are ongoing archeological digs and many of the activities can be viewed through the windows of the George C. Page Museum while exciting research continues into the pre-historic life of Los Angeles.

The La Brea Tar Pits are located adjacent to the Los Angeles Museum of Art (LACMA)  and they are two of five museums on the Miracle Mile’s  Museum Row, all within a 3 blocks walk.

Yes, you can walk in LA!  The Miracle Mile is a great walking shire (neighborhood).  So if you’re hungry let’s walk to some places and grab a bite to eat.
