As to the OP'S question I would say Seattle is fastest paced and Denver/Minneapolis are fairly close to each other.Minneapolis has the edge on cultural amen. while Denver holds the lead in things like higher end shopping IMO..
I enjoy all three cities...but Denver is currently home once again.
In terms of shopping what exactly does the Denver area have that MPLS. - STPL. doesn't? I've been to Denver several times and the shopping options don't exactly stand out, but then again I'm not all that into shopping.

BTW, the Denver area seems to be the slowest of the three.

You should look up the Cherry Creek Shopping Center. It really is a very very high-end place.

I've spent time in all three cities, and my preference is Seattle. I really love the water element. I don't think any of them seem slow.

I personally wouldn't blame anyone for picking Seattle over Denver. For that matter, I suppose I wouldn't blame anyone for picking Minneapolis over Denver. While I'm at it, I wouldn't blame anyone for picking Salina, Kansas over Denver. This is because we all have different preferences.

I would pick Denver over Seattle or Minneapolis, but really it wouldn't break my heart if I had to live in any of these choices.

Seattle seems to have a geographic edge for certain because it is a coastal city. That's a popular asset for a lot of people. Plus it has other outdoor recreation that the other two cities here have. (Mountains, lakes, camping, etc...)

I favor Denver because I am a huge sports fan. Now all three a very good sports cities, but I think Denver is way ahead of the others in terms of "sports cities".

I've been there and there isn't anything there that I can't find in the Minneapolis area.

I would say Minneapolis out of the three, but they are all pretty comparable.

Seattle is an enigma. It is both fast AND slow. The caffiene certainly flows there, and there is a certain energy due to the high-tech industry. However, its history is very laid-back and slow, so there is a little bit of conflict there. Add in the fact that Seattle is not a big "freeway" city, so the pace of driving is representative of arterials. Heck, I've noticed that in NYC as well. (Ever notice how slow NYC drivers are on expressways?) So the jury is out.
