PHP Converting new lines in multiline text box with </br> line break

Using PHP and MySQL, I've got a multiline input box where the admin can add an event location. The multiline text box outputs this to a MySQL database in the format:

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3...

When calling this in the display page in PHP, I want the page to recieve the information from the MySQL database and apply each line with a </br> at the end of each line. Is there a way to do this??

Thanks, Dan.
