Good for a summer visit?

I am thinking about a summer trip. I will be flying from Copenhagen and my friend will be flying to meet me from Boston. I have about $1500 to spend, including airfare. We were planning on traveling from July 26 until Aug 5-7. We like to be busy, but not insane. Beach would be nice, but isn't required.

We are debating between 3 different choices.

1. Azores. Is there enough to do for that long? Is the weather going to work out?

2. Barcelona and nearby. Is it too hot and too pricy?

3. Prague-Vienna-Budapest.

Any suggestions and advice?

1. never been to Azores, so can't comment

2.great city though I think a few days there would be enough

3.Love Prague and Vienna but never been to Budapest. certainly Prague will be a great deal cheaper than Vienna/

of the three options the last one will cost more in travelling because you are going between cities

If you want somewhere that is cheap, fun and has plenty to do (lakes, caves, wine, etc) then:

Barcelona, without a shadow of a doubt... temps can be about the same tbh, more costly yes, will flights to europe not be about $1000 that time though?
