Just to offer something a little different than all the suggestions of traveling the west coast, Oklahoma actually has four mountain ranges of its own (though none of them are as impressive as the Rockies or the Appalachians) and all of them are an easy day trip from Oklahoma City (in fact one can reach almost every corner of Oklahoma except the panhandle or the far southeastern bit in under three hours). The Wichita Mountains near Lawton are fairly prominent and offer some nice views and the Arbuckles between OKC and Dallas are home to places like Turner Falls. Osage County (to the northwest of Tulsa which itself has some somewhat scenic drives such as Riverside Drive along the Arkansas River) is full of scenic rolling hills and tribal history. Then of course there's Historic Route 66 which runs the length of the state along I-44 and I-40 and downtown OKC itself is home to the Alfred P Murrah Memorial building.

Driving highway 1 in Cali from San Francisco to LA is very scenic, especially around Big Sur. Also driving around Arizona, Utah, Colorado with various mountain views. Driving from north georgia to the great smoky mountains. Driving from Miami down to Key West.

I can think of 6-8 great loop day trips out of Asheville, NC. But you need time to enjoy Asheville itself.

I could go into more detail if that was your choice, though these trips are better later in the spring.
