help me capitalize: West or west?


Recommended Posts

Is there some sort of rule of thumb for whether to capitalize directions, like west or West?

Later:  "Looking for better opportunities, the moved west."  west or West?  


By west, she's referring to the West Coast.  But they are also moving west of their current location.  So confusing!
