I went to Worldcon in Denver when Lois was Guest of Honor. At the time I lived in Boulder, just an hour's drive away.
I wouldn't recommend it. I guess I am not a convention fan. Lois's parts were interesting and I did get to meet several favorite authors. But really, I feel I get to know them better online than from getting an autograph or talking to them for 15 minutes.
The rest of it was just a huge pain of walking long distances, waiting in lines and not knowing where to go next.
