Abstract: 
In recent decades, Mashhad has experienced increasing spatial changes in its public services development. Unbalanced distribution of Mashhad public services has created various issues for tourists and residents. The research pursues two main goals. One goal is to investigate the spatial correlation between public services and tourism attractions and tourism destination of Mashhad city. Another goal is to investigate the spatial inequality between urban areas in access to public services. One goal is to examine the spatial correlation between public services and urban tourism services on the one hand and the spatial correlation between public services and urban tourist attractions on the other. Another goal is to investigate the spatial inequality between urban areas in access to public services. For this purpose, it is attempted to calculate the indicators of access to public services, tourism services and tourism attractions of Mashhad city by a descriptive approach. These indicators are calculated using the inverse distance weighted interpolation (IDW) technique based on Mashhad urban database data. Then, using factor analysis and cluster analysis techniques, spatial correlations between indicators are tested. The results of the research indicate a significant spatial correlation between access to public services and access to tourism services and tourist attractions of Mashhad city. There are also spatial inequalities between the central areas of Mashhad city compared with the marginal areas in access to public services. These results show the significant spatial effects of urban tourism on the spatial development of public services, especially in the central areas of Mashhad city.
