HOA restrictions in Temecula area

I am new to this forum, so I hope I get posting right.
My husband and I fell in love with the Meadowview area of Temecula, but realized it has a HOA when we researched more. So now I have a two part question:
1. Are the HOAs in Temecula intense with the CCRs (I think that is what they are called, the rules)? I don't mind at all paying a fee for maintaining community services. However, I don't really want everything about my property dictated by the will of the HOA. I kind of assume that there is a standard HOA contract, but enforceability varies. So are Temecula HOAs (Meadoview specifically, but any of them really) strongly enforced? Hope that question makes sense.
2. Are there any other areas with a similar feel to Meadowview that do not have a HOA or at least more relaxed rules? We are looking for maybe around a .25-.75 acre lot, but still want to know our neighbors and have our child be able to play outside with the neighborhood kids. Does this exist?
Any thoughts are very much appreciated. We are still a ways from moving, but this was the only southern ca city that has really excited us so far in our search.
Also, if any interracial couples have input on how comfortable they feel in Temecula, I would love feedback on that. My husband is Hispanic/Asian and I am white. We never had an issue in Central Ca, so I would think we wouldn't in southern ca. But it is certainly something I would want to be aware of prior to moving.
Thank You for any feedback.
