Az on our last road trip.. It's definitely more touristy than, say, Globe and Superior, but it's cute. Congress is just up the road also. It's somewhat of a ghost town in that it has relatively few people still living there, but it has some interesting history. If you appreciated Superior then you may like Coolidge. It's a cotton farming town, though it's grown a bit with retirees moving in.
You could also do the eastern side of the state, which is ripe with small towns. Alpine is a good suggestion. There's also St.

John's, Springerville and Snowflake. You also may appreciate Clifton. I also think that Safford has a nice downtown area. How did I forget Wickenburg? Yes, it's a great old west town. Scenic saguaro cactus everywhere. And it can be on the way to Prescott. Great suggestions everyone.
I've actually driven through Kingman and Bullhead City on my way to Vegas and wasn't all that interested. However Oatman and Chloride look like very cool places to check out. I also drove through Wickenburg on my way from Vegas back to Phoenix and I made a mental note that it looked like a possible town to explore sometime. I've been to Globe a couple of times and honestly even though Globe is more of a town with more to do I actually prefer Superior.
Although there's not a lot to do in Superior I find it's scenic beauty quite captivating. I can see why it's been featured in a number of films. It's good for 24 hours but i probably wouldn't want to stay any longer than that. Clifton does resemble Superior, I might check that one out as well. While I'm in Jerome i might have check out Cottonwood , maybe lunch or something. I love these AZ road trips, I fly solo and it's an awesome 4 to 5 day adventure.
Thanks again for the suggestions. Also, last summer on my way from Bisbee to Superior I drove through Tucson. We would Very well-maintained attraction. Lots of interesting history to learn and enjoy.

Originally a mining hotspot, Tombstone was the largest productive silver district in Arizona. However, since that was long ago tapped dry, Tombstone mostly relies on tourism now and capitalizes on its fame for being the site of the Gunfight at the O. K Corral: a showdown between famous lawmen including Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday and an infamous organized group of outlaws, the Cowboys.
East Allen Street is worth exploring: its boardwalks are lined with shops, saloons and restaurants.
