Pack a picnic and take advantage of the shade. There is a $10 entry fee good for multiple days. The path to the lighthouse is pleasant and the view of the city is picturesque. Most of the buildings are not open to the public however plan on spending an hour or better walking around the grounds. This would be the perfect day picnic with the family.
