If you don't want to shell out more money getting the Kings and Barons DLC, then there are a couple of tactics you can use to help you get it without it. One is to make good use of farms, and to understand how they work. The computer on easy will never use farms, so try to manipulate the roads so that there are only one or two huge farms on the map, connected to lots of little cities. Small cities are best, as you will get three points for each city a farm connects to.

The other main tactic that can really help is to learn how to steal opponents cities and roads - mainly cities. Once the computer starts to build a city, particularly if they are making quite a large one, you can put a city piece down nearby (close but not connecting) with a villager on it, then try and connect the two cities. This will result in a very large city, and both of you will get full points for it, so you can easily get an extra 30 points right there.

I just had a decent game where I was able to hi-jack just one of the bots cities, and ended up with a score of 192, without using any of the DLC. Considering you'll be playing this quite a few times on your way to 5000, you should be able to do this successfully at least once on your way, without having to shell out more money on DLC.
