Based on limited evidence from Detroit area cons, unless you're a member of a solid sub-group (e.g. Dorsai, filking fandom), you don't travel out of the area for cons. I'm not sure how this applies to other metro areas.
I think that there is a regional component to it. One only needs to look at the map of where Worldcon members come from to notice that California, Illinois and Massachusetts are disproportionately well represented given their overall population, and even their fannish population.
