LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Hundreds in the Lake Area lined up for their chance to see the insides of some of Shell Beach's historical homes during the 38th Annual Palm Sunday Tour of Homes.  

This year's theme, "Windows on the Water," allowed sightseers to see "breathtaking" views from four different homes lining the lakefront. 

"The houses on tour display a variety of architectural design and exquisite interiors, and each offers a glimpse of contemporary living in historic properties," said Donna Richard, this year's tour chair. 

For those who came out for the first time, the tour gave them the chance to see the insides of the houses they have admired for years. 

"I would drive by these houses and I've always wondered what they looked like on the inside," said Lake Charles native Mary Ann Dever. "Now, I can say I've been inside."

Others have been on the tour many times before. For them, it's a chance collect ideas. 

"You can see what others have done to their homes and you get ideas," said Cary Vercher.
