3 Days in Budapest-Day Trip ideas?

My boyfriend and I are coming to Budapest the second week in November for 3 days and are trying to find s good day trip. We are in our late 20s and love food and culture, not your typical tourist spots. We have looked at Bratislava or the Danube river towns? We will be in Bienna and Prague before hand. What do you recommend?

You can hardly scratch the surface of things to do in Budapest itself for three days so I'd suggest a half day trip to one of the baths, then the other half day a trip to one of the ruin pubs.

In the evening go to the Fisherman Bastion at night fall after the city lights come on. It is very romantic to look out at the city and river below.

I agree that you will only scratch the surface of Bpest in 3 days, but if you must go, try Eger or at a push Pecs. Of the towns nearer Bpest I prefer Vac over the towns on the West bank, it isn't so touristy.

Don't bother with Bratislava.
