Check out Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity Maps. When you get there, a map of the U.S. will be near the top of the page. There are two tabs... STATES THAT HONOR MY PRMITS and PERMITS HONORED BY STATE. Click on the STATES THAT HONOR MY PERMIT tab, then click on your home state (Tennessee). The states that show up in BLUE honor your Tennessee permit. Those in RED do not. Next, go to the top of the page and click on the CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT INFO tab. Select one state at a time, and review the laws of each state you will be traveling through/to. Pay particular attention to area considered as OFF LIMITS, and whether it is a MUST CONCEAL or MAY CONCEAL state. Some states allow open carry and others are MUST CONCEAL states. If you have further questions, follow the instructions on the page for CONTACT INFORMATION or contact the State Police for that particular state.
One other thing that I do to add to my knowlege base is I cut and paste onto a word document the OFF LIMITS area listed for each state I will be traveling through, and print a copy to have handy as you are in each state... center console or glove compartment.
