road trip to cycle?

i recently got my first road bike and im trying to learn this sport. recently i was told or office would be closed for 3 days in april so i'll get a 5 day weekend. with not much time to financially plan for a vacation, im thinking about going on a road trip alone with my bike. i live in western KY and im looking for a place i could go that isnt to far away where i could camp and ride. i have considered gatlinberg TN, is there anywhere else i should consider? how do i find locations that are safe to ride using the internet? google isnt helping me much. nothing is really specified as to the riding being for road bikes or mtn bikes.

If you are interested in mountainous riding and want low-traffic roads, you might have a bit better luck in Western North Carolina than in Gatlinburg. It's quite touristy around there.

Maybe someone can give you a better recommendation if you are more specific in what kind of riding you want to do (how far, how much climbing, etc).
