If you are staying in Cannaregio and want to experience Venice off the beaten path head to Fondamenta Misericordia.
If you have enough time I definitely recommend that you experience local life in Venice and this
is one of the loveliest areas of Cannaregio.
This canal is also very popular area to grab something to eat.
It is lined with traditional osterias and small restaurants. This is great area if you are looking for bars that stay opened longer in the night ( another similar area is Campo Santa Margherita in Dorsoduro).
