Bursting with cultural attractions and blocks of retail heaven, the Miracle Mile in Los Angeles, California, is a great destination for fans of museums and shopping alike. What began as a dirt road back in the early 1920s has become a mecca for art, history, and commercial development. With so much to do in such a small stretch of space, it is a worthwhile pursuit to book a room at one of the hotels near the Miracle Mile.
Visiting the Miracle Mile
Miracle Mile hotels are accessible by public transportation from the LAX airport, with the 111/311 bus stopping most frequently to pick up passengers. With so much to explore in the Mid-Wilshire and Mid-City West areas, however, you may want to look into Miracle Mile rental cars. The Miracle Mile is known for an area called Museum Row, so put on your sightseeing glasses and head to one of several public galleries. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is a popular one, while attractions like the Craft and Folk Art Museum appeal to followers of lesser-known works. Film buffs can also rejoice—the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences plans to open the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures on the Miracle Mile. If you choose one of the many great Los Angeles hotel deals, the Miracle Mile is a great local choice for an afternoon of shopping as well. With 1.5 miles of shops and eateries, there's plenty to do on the "Fifth Avenue of the West".
