I suspect this trip would be much easier if we were going to New Mexico instead.

I'm heading to Arizona for 3-4 days of unfettered roaming with my boyfriend. We are a strange pair of humans, and up for anything that sounds interesting. We're renting a car, and don't mind driving ridiculous distances for a small payoff. We'll need to find 3 places to sleep during the course of this little trip, as well. Any ideas, the more outlandish the better? We almost never get to travel together, so here's hoping for some strange fun if we can get it!

We arrive in Phoenix on Thursday morning, and need to return to Phoenix sometime Sunday (so 3 nights and 4 days). The only ideas I've come up with so far (after checking previous threads) are 1) staying a night at these clothing-optional rustic hot springs
, 2) maybe sleeping in an old airstream trailer at Shady Dell
in Bisbee one night, and frankly, that's all I have so far.
I wouldn't mind some other overnight ideas, but I also don't want to form the whole trip around simply sleeping in quirky places. Are there unique towns? "Ghost towns" or things like that? Communes that are up for visitors? Rock formations? Towns that are like Bisbee in it's golden-age (or is it still a pretty interesting place?) Cheesy-touristy is fine too.
We're throwing this together really quickly, and I'm researching various ideas, but it would be helpful to get some personal recommendations at this point if possible! Many thanks.
