Miracle Mile

Miracle Mile Review

The strip of Wilshire Boulevard between La Brea and Fairfax avenues was bought up by developers in the 1920s, and they created a commercial district that catered to automobile traffic. Nobody thought the venture could be successful, so the burgeoning strip became known as Miracle Mile. It was the world's first linear downtown, with building designs incorporating wide store windows to attract attention from passing cars. As the city's art deco architecture has come to be appreciated, preserved, and restored, the area's exemplary architecture is a highlight.
