Where to go first?

We are going to Budapest this summer for about 2 1/2 weeks. We are planing on going to Lake Balaton for 2 or 3 days. Our question is should we go to Lake Balaton first by catching a train there after we arrive at the airport in Budapest? Then after being there 2-3 days return to Budapest for the rest of our trip or should we do Budapest first then go to Lake Balaton at the end? Since I need to get our hotels picked out it would help to have decided where to start our vacation. Any suggestions??

Thank you,\ Nora

Why not split the time on your trip stay in Budapest when you first get there

Get a feel for the city and then go to Balaton enjoy a few days and then return for the end of your trip to the city.

When you get back to the city you will really have a chance to focus on the places that peaked your interest at first giving them the extra time you want.

Just a thought
