Miracle Mile Shops is a 475,000 square foot (44,129 m²), 1.5-mile (2.4 km) long, enclosed shopping mall on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It is home to more than 140 stores and 15 restaurants.
Synonymous with retail districts throughout the country, the name connotes a shopping environment and also alludes to the "Miracle Mile" district, as the casino renovates its image to a Los Angeles themed resort.

The $300 million mall opened with the reconstructed Aladdin hotel in August, 2000 as the Desert Passage mall. It was built and operated by Trizec Properties. The mall had a Moroccan theme to match the adjoining Aladdin hotel. The shopping complex featured an hourly indoor thunderstorm.
The mall was sold in 2003 to Boulevard Invest LLC owned by Investcorp, RFR Holding LLC, and Tristar Capital.
To match the conversion of the Aladdin to a Planet Hollywood, the Desert Passage was renovated and adopted a new Los Angeles theme, being called Miracle Mile Shops.
