It's no surprise to any kid from Massachusetts that Fenway Park and the Freedom Trail are must-sees. It just took Budget Travel a bit longer to figure it out.

Budget Travel has made up a list of the 15 Places Kids Should See by the Age of 15, and the home of the Sox and Freedom Trail figure prominently. To wit, Mayor Thomas M. Menino, along with representatives from the Sox organization and the Freedom Trail Foundation, will mark the occasion with a pregame ceremony this evening about 6:45 at Fenway.

Just to give you some idea of the competition, the other attractions on Budget Travel's list include: the Grand Canyon, Redwood National Park, Monticello, Niagara Falls, The National Mall in DC, Colonial Williamsburg, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Independence Hall in Philly, Alcatraz Island, Ellis Island, Yellowstone National Park, Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve, and the San Diego Zoo.
