It is estimated that casual weekday leisure travel is affected by the characteristics of the neighborhood environments around residential areas, which are the foundations of urban functions and spatial structures. This study analyzed the relationships between the characteristics of neighborhood environments and the weekday leisure travel patterns of homemakers, students, and the unemployed, who are the major participants in weekday leisure travel. First, the study classified weekday leisure travel by purpose into shopping, leisure, and dining out. Subsequently, a linear regression analysis was conducted to identify the relationships between the distance of these trips by type, each individual, household characteristics of each starting point (residential areas), location, and travel and land use characteristics. The results showed that among the characteristics of neighborhood environments, the common factors that affected all types of travel were gender and type of residence within individual and household characteristics, and primary means of transportation within location and travel characteristics. Further, the results revealed that within the scope of the neighborhood centered on residential areas, women engaged in more weekday leisure travel, usually via walking. Moreover, from among the land use characteristics, the total area of commercial facilities affected travel for shopping. Conversely, land use mix index (LUM) did not affect any type of weekday leisure travel. Within the context of each neighborhood, this study identified that the supply of single-use facilities affected weekday leisure travel.
