There's a ton to do around Cairo, just very little to do IN Cairo...you can go to one of the resort towns on the Red Sea, but that's if you like sun and snorkeling/scuba. Next, there are the pyramids at Giza, Saqqarah, etc...several in the Cairo area as well as Memphis (old Egyptian capital). You can head over to Mount Sinai and spend a day there, although it's about 8 hours away by bus. There are also trips to the desert that you can take, offroading trips that require police escort but apparently are tons of fun to do.

If you are looking for things to do IN Cairo, you can go to the Egyptian museum, see ancient Egyptian relics and mummies, walk around Khan el-Khalili, the major market area, walk along the Nile, or check out Coptic (Christian) Cairo.
