Tourism is one of the most important family and urban movements. Today, tourism is remembered as an industry that is among the important concerns of urban planners in ensuring security and sustainable development. In this research, an attempt has been made to extract tourism security indicators in terms of their importance relying on the geography of Khuzestan province. The data was analyzed using the theme analysis method and structural equation modeling. The findings showed that contextual indicators such as space security, city nature and geography, vitality, and the attention level to individual and gender differences have had the greatest impact on the city's security, and in contrast to the proper design of the urban space, suitable transportation and communication, and local security along with amenities and suitable tourism provide the most important causal conditions for tourism security. Causal modeling showed that quality design and planning in urban space is the most important factor in increasing tourism security and attracting tourists. It is suggested that urban space designers and planners pay more attention to the city elements, city graphics, city accessibility, and livability in order to provide a suitable field for increasing tourism security. The quantitative and qualitative increase of recreational and tourist places along with the restoration and development of the transportation system plays a constructive role in creating tourism security.
