While this is from 2010 and there are likely some changes since then, here is a good source for viewing Urban Area maps: https://www.census.gov/geo/maps-data/maps/2010ua.html

Those are impressive, but remember the road networks are based on TIGER data, which is not as accurate as the stuff that Google and Bing provide. However I will say they are more complete or more detailed. Depending on the area 2010 may be quite outdated. I love maps and have training in GIS so I can ramble on the disadvantages/advantages of any map, but I won't.
