Miracle Mile

The Miracle Mile in Los Angeles, California, is an area in the Mid-Wilshire district and partially in the Mid-City West subregion in the Westside consisting of a 1.5-mile stretch of Wilshire Boulevard between Fairfax and Highland Avenues. It may also refer to the surrounding neighborhoods.

In the early 1920s, Wilshire Boulevard west of Western Avenue was an unpaved farm road, extending through dairy farms and bean fields. Developer A. W. Ross saw potential for the area and developed Wilshire as a commercial district to rival downtown Los Angeles. As wealth and newcomers poured into the fast-growing city, Ross’s parcel became one of Los Angeles’s most desirable areas. Acclaimed as “America’s Champs-Élysées,” this stretch of Wilshire near the La Brea Tar Pits was named “Miracle Mile” for its improbable rise to prominence.

The Miracle Mile District is one of the city’s more densely populated areas, but is considerably more affluent than other high-density neighborhoods like Westlake and Koreatown.

The area is within the Los Angeles Unified School District, Board District 4.
