If the later, consider GOBA in Ohio which isn't that far from you. This year it starts in Lorain County west of Cleveland.
GOBA is a 3000 rider annual event that always starts on Father's Day weekend in June. It's a week long organized tour that averages about 50 miles/day with a couple of optional days. It's camping but your baggage is transported by the organization every day so you only need your emergency tools on your bike. Food is available at routine food stops. Each night is spent in a small town with the campground being a county fairgrounds, school grounds or similar.
There are similar week long tours in other states too. Wisconsin has one (SAGBRAW) every summer as does Michigan (PALM).
Most of thes rides have a motel option if camping isn't your thing but the cost is significantly higher as with any "credit card" tour.
