Description: Leisure travel and visitation to natural areas and constraints to undertaking these activities are important concerns for recreation resource managers and tourism businesses. Surveys were administered to Los Angeles, Barcelona, Glasgow, and Morelia, Mexico, residents to ascertain leisure travel and undeveloped natural area visitation levels and constraints. A comparison of these cities with abundant nearby natural resources shows significant differences in leisure travel and natural area visitation levels. Differences were attributable to respondent demographic disparities and importance of visitation constraints. The study identifies how cultural values produce significant differences in visitation constraints and use of undeveloped natural areas.

Keywords: Recreation, natural areas, cross-cultural, constraints, visitation, international
