Miracle Mile/Fairfax District Attractions in Los Angeles

The Miracle Mile/Fairfax District is a historic Los Angeles neighborhood that offers things to do ranging from first-class museums to quirky shopping.

You could spend days just exploring LACMA before making it to nearby Petersen Automotive Museum and the Craft & Folk Art Museum. Immediately next door to LACMA is also the La Brea Tar Pits: a park where oil is constantly seeping to the surface.

Past meets future at the Farmers Market and the Grove. . . the protected outdoor stalls at the Farmers Market are really top-knotch food stalls, personally I am partial to the Singapore Banana Leaf and the Pampas Grill churrascaria. Incidentally the administrative offices of the Farmers Market are housed on the grounds of the historic Gilmore Adobe (also called the Rancho La Brea). This adobe was built in 1852 when this was all farmland. It is now right below the shopping garage for the Grove: the adjacent shopping center that is a popular spot worth checking out as well.

This list is rounded out by a older shopping center The Beverly Center, a huge odd-looking thing with an oil-pumping station hidden in plain site on the west side. Finally, Melrose Avenue is home to a diverse shopping area; the merchandise tends to be a little more reasonable east of Fairfax Avenue.
