How many Miles equal one League?
There are different definitions of the league, as it is not an official unit in any country. We use the U.S. land league definition, according to which 3 miles equal one league. The symbol is "U.S. st. leag.", but "lea" is used as well.
Difference between Miles and Leagues
Both miles and leagues are used to measure large distances, such as travel distances. Their magnitude is similar, and this is probably the reason leagues fell out of fashion as early as they did, while miles are still used in the US, UK, and a couple of other countries. Both units are part of the imperial unit system.
