Wow, you guys have a ton of these!!! This is really turning into a cool list. Plenty from the coast, how about a few more from the lakes??? I know of a couple that haven't been listed yet but I want to give someone else a chance.

Sandusky Harbor Breakwater from Marblehead.

I'm thinking Marblehead should be visible from Cedar Point, but not being able to get onto Cedar Point amusement park (current owner of the lighthouse) last month I can't be sure of that.

A few from the GL for Hersh.

From Cheyboygan Crib one can see Cheyboygan Range lights and Fourteen Ft Shoal.

From Fourteen Ft Shoal you can see Poe Reef and the afore mentioned Crib light.

From Peninsula Point you can see Minneapolis Shoal.

There are others out there.

On Michigan's "Thumb" you can see the Port Austin Reef Light from Point Aux Barques.
Gravelly Shoal Light is easily seen from the Charity Island Light. My old stomping grounds. (They are only about three miles apart)
Fort Gratiot can be seen from the Huron Lightship.
St. Clair Flats Old Range Lights and the Lake St. Clair Light are visible to each other. (3 lights, total)
Thimble Shoals Light (VA) you can see both Cape Henry's and quite possibly Cape Charles.

More from the lakes, for Hersh:

From the 1833 Buffalo tower, I can see South Buffalo Light, the remnants of Horseshoe Reef Light, the 1961 Buffalo Lighthouse and Point Abino Light on the Ontario shore. Not to mention the little 1903 breakwater "bottle light" you can see just to the left of the 1833 lighthouse in the avatar over <-- there.

Here's a photo of one that hasn't been mentioned yet, taken from the lantern of the Jacobsville lighthouse looking south towards the Keweenaw lower entry light.

You can see the old Sapelo range light from the Sapelo lighthouse. You can see a photo of both on my Sapelo page (SC).
